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:

Gordon Hayward Goes Down With Serious Injury

Something you never want to see.

Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward went down with a serious leg injury just five minutes into his Celtics career. Hayward went up for an alley-oop against the Cleveland Cavaliers and came down awkwardly on his leg.

It looked like his ankle was dislocated/fractured.

Upon suffering the injury the game was stopped with players and fans alike in complete disbelief of what had occurred. Hayward was stretchered off the court wearing an air cast on his leg.

He was brought into the Cavs locker room for further evaluation and was then going to be moved to another area of the arena.

Celtics and Cavs medical staff announced that the injury suffered by Hayward is a fractured left ankle. A quick google search pegs the timeline at six weeks for the bones to heal.

More information to come as the story develops….

Celtics Talk: The Little Guys

The play of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward will not make or break this Celtics team. Everyone knows that they’ll perform. No it’s the ancillary characters, those hard-nosed guys who have been placed on the backburner, that will make the difference for Boston during the upcoming 2017-18 season.

This past summer was charged with controversy and pandemonium, following some massive moves made by Danny Ainge and his subordinates. Dishing out well-groomed fan favorites to teams manifold, Boston felt like the nexus of offseason activity in the NBA.

Many Celtics fans still harbor some reproach, regarding the unfamiliarity of this team. But I assure you that there is still exists that “Tommy Point” foundation, which the Celtics will look to for a foothold when the going gets tough. These are the individuals that will dictate the trajectory of this team’s season.

TV And Live Stream Info: Boston Celtics Kick Off Season In Cleveland

Published

Boston Celtics

One of the most interesting sports teams in the City of Boston over the last couple of months has been the Boston Celtics. They have been this without even playing a single regular season game. But that all changes on Tuesday night in Cleveland.

The reason for this interestingness that surrounds them is simple. The NBA offseason.

In the offseason, the Boston Celtics made a flurry of deals and signings highlighted by the drafting of Jayson Tatum, the signing of Gordon Hayward, and the trade for Kyrie Irving. These three moves highlighted an offseason for Danny Ainge that could go down in history. With only Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, and Jaylen Brown returning to the team it looks to be a very different Celtics team on and off the court.

Heading into their regular season opener on Tuesday night they are one of the favorites to win it all. But before they win a championship they will need to prove that they can play well together and compete against the leagues best. Fortunately for Coach Stevens and the Celtics, they will have an opportunity to get a look at the leagues best to open the season.

With the C’s playing the Cavaliers comes a number of storylines, but here are the best.

  • Irving’s return to Cleveland
  • Irving v. LeBron James
  • Isaiah Thomas against the Celtics
  • Chemistry between the Celtics starting five
  • How will Stevens use his new players and what will the rotations look like.
  • Cavs vs Celtics

The last point is the most important one of them all. When it comes down to it these two teams, in theory, are the best in the Eastern Conference. They will likely have plenty of battles over the course of the NBA season and could be the two teams that make it to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Whatever happens for the 2018 Celtics starts on Tuesday at 8 pm, but for now, it is shaping up to be a memorable and exciting season in Boston.
