Things have not exactly gone as planned this season for the Boston Celtics.
At 18-17 on the season, this really should need limited explanation. This is a franchise that was in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals a year ago, and now it is fighting to remain above .500. That is where their recent four-game winning streak has led them.
Naturally when things don't go well for a team with a lot of new faces, eyeballs and fingers start pointing in a couple of directions, one of which is a seat a few rows back at TD Garden, where Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge sits.
There were a lot of interesting moves made over the offseason for the Celtics. Ainge was putting forth an effort to re-build on the fly and leave no transition year between the end of the Big Three and the start of Rajon Rondo's team.
Though it is still fairly early, some of these moves have not panned out. So let's play the great second-guessing game and re-do the 2012 offseason for the Boston Celtics using that 20-20 hindsight and see what we can come up with.
