Video: Danny Ainge Interview

 

Here’s a must watch via CSNNE. Danny Ainge sits down with Greg Dickerson for a wide-ranging interview on the first half of the season.

    His words on KG scare me a bit. Would've thought he was untouchable, but listening to this I'm starting to think that Danny would be open to including him in trades (different to shopping him, obviously). Especially when comparing to how he's talking about Pierce, who I think has been a less reliable player than KG this year.

    Also, happy Danny acknowledged that Rondo has taken plays/games off on D this year. He's been downright awful at times and it seems like Doc is just ignoring it, but that confirms it's something they have recognised which is good. I'm sure we've lost a few games early in this season because of his awful D, average PGs regularly lit him up pre AB returning. It's like because he quarterbacks our team on offense he tries to do it on D, with roaming and organising people, but because he's needed so much more as he's always defending the ball that's not really possible on D so he just ends up getting blown by.

      There are just so many untruths to this. Rondo did not get lit up on a regular basis before Bradley returned. He's never been a great on the ball defender and he's always gambled too much. The reason it seems so glaring the last few years is because now there is nobody in the middle to slow down/stop the dribble penetration. He is one the best roaming perimeter defenders in the league.

    I'm begging everyone right now, can anyone type a summary for me? I'm deaf and I'm a die hard celtic fan…would love to know what Ainge is saying in this interview

      I don't think it should all fall on one person's shoulders. Maybe we can all chip in.
      - KG is not always motivated either. he has to believe the team can win.
      - Rondo is getting more mature but his emotions are weird, like he thinks there are conspiracies against him from officials, they are out to get him, etc.
      - Ainge suggests he would have wanted to break up the team but now that they're playing well he doesn't forsee trades. *that's what he said prior to Perkins too.
      - He says that he can't affirm or deny interest in Pierce as a policy – but last year there were rumors of the same thing and they were false inventions of the media and irresponsible journalism.
      - Seasons are long and hard and this is like last season.
      - Bradley can score too.

      Guys, fill in what I missed.

        He also discusses Bradley's emergence as a legit player on this team. Asked if Bradley's offense is just frosting on his "defensive cake", Ainge says "Absolutely not. Last year Avery was our most consistent offensive player. He is a major contributor on offense." He also talks about Pierce trade rumors and plays the political "I cant say yes or no" card. The KG piece is very interesting and I tend to agree. KG is a very emotional and passionate player. However, sometimes KG gets "down" or looks like he lacks hope sometimes that his team can really accomplish this. Then Bradley will block the shit outta someone or Jeff Green facials someone on a slam and KG goes crazy like his battery just got recharged. Ainge's viewpoint on KG was very accurate. KG needs help, passionate help. He needs Bradley "in your face defense" help and "f**k you I'm gonna dunk on your ass" aggression help. He can't be the only dude on the floor acting and showing like he gives a shit.

          That's good point. Prior to AB, KG had Posey, TA, Perk and to a lesser extent Big Baby. He needs his fellow pitbulls to add bite to the bark.
