Danny Ainge pulled some genius moves last year to get the Celtics Banner 17. But that magic hasn’t quite carried over to this year. The Patrick O’Bryant signing was a total bust. Sam Cassell never got off the bench. We’ll have to wait and see how the Stephon Marbury deal works out. And now with Joe Smith and Drew Gooden being waived, the question is… Did Danny Ainge blow it by moving on Mikki Moore so quickly?
I’m sure KG’s injury added a sense of urgency… as did Oklahoma City almost literally waiting until the last minute to waive Smith. But one has to wonder if a little patience would have paid off.
