Opening Up The Files On The Boston Celtics

Wyc Grousbeck talked about Danny Ainge this morning on The Greg Hill Show

This morning on WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show, Boston Celtics Governor Wyc Grousbeck fired a few subliminal shots at former President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge.

Grousbeck was asked what actually went into Ainge stepping down and then later on taking a position in Utah. Greg Hill asked Grousbeck straight up if Ainge “was run out of town” and this is what he said:

“He bailed out last year on his own wishes. Danny came and suddenly resigned last February and that was unexpected, unwanted, and turned into promoting Brad and hiring Ime.”

Grousbeck was also asked who deserves more credit for the construction of the Celtics? And although the easy answer is Ainge, which Wyc gave him his flowers for, Grousbeck followed up with this jab:

“Redoing the roster over the summer and then sending half the roster away at the trade deadline. Seven out of 15 guys were sent away.”

Obviously Ainge deserves credit for drafting Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, and Jayson Tatum- no one is saying otherwise. However, it was Stevens who had to clean up the mess that was the roster.

I look at it like this: Danny Ainge built the team. Stevens developed the team. And then Ime perfected the team.
