The Boston Celtics are a great and proud organization. Many members of the current team were huge factors in the winning of the 2008 NBA championship. For what it's worth, that 2008 title team is among the greatest championship squads ever constructed—even if they did have a rocky road to the playoffs.
So, when we try to assign blame for a disappointing (thus far) 2012-2013 season, it's tinged with some admiration and some acknowledgement that even the esteemed can falter. It's also tinged with the suspicion that Danny Ainge has some sort of trade brewing, one that can potentially knock him off the "blame" list.
