Celtics President Danny Ainge Liking Draft Related Tweets On Twitter



Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge Is Liking Draft Related Tweets On Twitter Related To Keeping The Number 1 Overall Pick

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has been known to be highly interactive on Twitter, recently though Ainge’s Twitter history is centering on the upcoming NBA draft that could determine the future of the Boston Celtics

On Twitter, Ainge has liked a number of posts offering both opinion and analysis. The tweets posts include a tweet from Bill Simmons saying he wants the Celtics to stay at No. 1 and draft Fultz, as well as tweets listing Lonzo Ball’s strengths and weaknesses.

It is important not to read into this “likes” as they hold no weight into what Ainge and the Celtics might do with their number 1 overall pick. Liking posts related to Ball and Fultz are not shocking simply because they are projected no.1 and no.2 in the draft and he is likely reading/watching everything he can get his hands on.

The like of the Simmons tweet is interesting though as it was in the opinion world of things and comes out strong in favor of staying at the no.1 pick. This tweet I do read a little into, I think Ainge has been leaning that way with this pick given the number 1 pick is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

It has been theorized that if Ainge was to trade a Brooklyn pick at this point it would be either Jaylen Brown (last years Nets pick choice) or the 2018 pick that is expected to be top 5 again next season barring any type of team revitalization and half a miracle down in Brooklyn.

Check out all the Tweets he has liked and decide for yourself if they mean anything or are just meaningless social media interactions that we all have.

PS: Ainge seems to be a big fan of Simmons’s sports site The Ringer.

Ainge has liked the following tweets related to the NBA draft since the number 1 overall pick was awarded to them on May 23rd:

Jayson Tatum’s Patience: The Deciding Factor



Jayson Tatum

There is currently a preponderance of NBA rookies who are dominating the league. We’re talking about 20-somethings (some even younger than that) leading their teams in nearly every statistical category.

This is no longer your father’s NBA.

Gone are the days of “earning your stripes”. In today’s game, if a player has the talent he’s going to be encouraged to use it.

Our favorite youngling, here in Boston, is unanimously Jayson Tatum. This 19-year-old kid has stormed the Garden like some new-school Larry BirdPaul Pierce hybrid. He’s the futuristic embodiment of “Celtics Basketball” – the silhouette for Boston’s modern logo.

But Tatum’s not even the superlative of this year’s rookie class!

Many “Green Teamers” would argue the cockeyed contention that Jayson Tatum is a shoo-in for Rookie of the Year. As heartening as it may be for the flourishing freshman to hear such high praise, it still stems from unchecked fandom.

I swear, there must be something circulating around the Charles River. It seems that Boston has become more and more generous, in recent years, when it comes to appraising young talent.

In every sport, we’re ready to give our kindergarteners their high school diploma, the very second they demonstrate their ability.

The homer expectations, surrounding Jayson Tatum, are in need of an adjustment. Let’s take a look at a few rookies, who are ahead of Tatum in the primary categories.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly



New England is now fully immersed in the brisk whirlwind of the holiday season. This is a conflicted time for sports fans.

The threadbare traditions and awkward reunion of estranged family members only serves to interrupt our connection to our favorite teams. And it happens right when we’re in the thick of things.

How can one prioritize with so many agendas – family or sports? Surely there will come a moment when you’ll have to choose.

But do not worry. Trifecta Sports has your back.

We’re here to abbreviate all of the Boston Sports highlights so that fans can stay tuned in, all while going through the motions of the season. I promise to be even more critical and unforgiving, when eviscerating the play of New England teams.

So do your thing! Put a smile on for the family. And keep coming to Trifecta for sports news, whenever you get a free second to pretend that you’re bathroom.

You already know what this is, folks. It’s time for another perturbed installment of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Walking in Winter Wonderland Edition.

Celtics 2018 Draft Prospects



Boston Celtics

They say lightning never strikes twice, but the Boston Celtics have managed to capture lightning in a bottle multiple times, with their past several draft picks. From flowering stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, to secondary underdogs like Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart – the C’s recent draft decisions look more educated with every passing game.

But the exhilarating string of Brooklyn picks, which the infamous Big 3 trade exfoliated, are now all but exhausted. Well, directly speaking that is (semantics). Boston must now face a new mutation of parlayed picks and the stipulations that come with them.

Fun, right?

The selections of the immediate future will be governed by all sorts of caveats and esoteric protections that are hard to get excited about.

Nonetheless, Danny Ainge and his pencil-pushing subordinates have demonstrated their superlative ability to make something out of nothing. Whether the Celtics have the first pick or the last pick, they are going to find value in a “Belichickian” manner.

Let’s take a look at the prospects that Boston should consider drafting, come June of 2018.
