Ainge and Stevens comment on LeBron and free agency

I want to thank you for taking three seconds to read this, and stepping away from twitter waiting for LeBron's decision part two. The world is waiting for James, and I'll feel bad for Cleveland if he doesn't pick them. I won't blame James if he doesn't pick Cleveland, because I think the media has put false hope in those fans ears.

"As far as watching free agency, it’s hilarious," said Stevens. "Is that the best way to put it? I just sit back and enjoy it."

Yes, most of the league appears in a holding pattern until the likes of James decide where they'll be playing next season.

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge even needled reporters about the breathless minute-by-minute reports about all things free agency lately.

"I see every one of you [reporters] following your Twitter nonstop trying to follow everything going on in free agency," said Ainge. "I haven’t really been worried that much about it. That’s going to work out. We just focus on what we need to do and try to get the Boston Celtics better."

Ainge and the Celtics completed a three-team swap on Wednesday with the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers that brought back center Tyler Zeller, guard Marcus Thornton, and Cleveland's 2016 first-round pick (top-10 protected). Ainge is intrigued by whether Cleveland can lure James with the cap space it created as part of the move.

"Who knows what’s going to happen with Cleveland?" said Ainge. "It could end up being a good deal for them. We’re all waiting to see what’s going on with their cap space. I wish I was in their position."

Ainge was asked how James' potentially swapping teams might change the complexion of the Eastern Conference.

"I don’t know, it depends -- you mean shifting from one city to another in the Eastern Conference?" asked Ainge. "Wherever LeBron goes, the team is a contender. That’s how good a player he is."

Ainge, who got Heat president Pat Riley a little riled up last year, was asked if he'd take any pleasure in seeing a rival squad lose the NBA's biggest star.

"No, I don’t take any pleasure in anyone’s pain," said Ainge. "I know this is a tough business [with] free agency and it's all part of what we all go through. I certainly don’t take any joy in seeing great players leave organizations that have been good to them."

I think Stevens comments are pretty funny. It's the NBA and not college, and he gets that, and he sees it as a form of entertainment. Because it honestly is.


  1. Turn that around Danny. How about a great player leaving an organization which has never appreciated him or treated him with respect?
