Riles also got Shaq without having to give up Wade!!!Laker Freak said:I would have to give it to the Miami GM because with a maxed out payroll were still able to bring in solid players like Damon Jones, Shandon Anderson, Laettner, Zo, Keyon Dooling, and Michael Doleac.
The 02-03 Celtics were a solid playoff team? They were a shell of the team that went to the ECF and were lucky to get out of the first round. The talent is significantly upgraded now compared to what it was when Ainge took over in May 03.RP McMurphy said:Danny Ainge has done a very good job, but I don't think his accomplishments measure up to what's been done in Seattle, Chicago, Phoenix, or Houston.
He's taken a solid playoff team, blown them up, and rebuilt them as a solid playoff team. Wait until they're significantly better than they were in 2002 before you start handing him trophies.
