Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge reloaded this past summer to take one last shot at the Atlantic Division crown and hopefully another crack at the Miami HEAT in the Eastern Conference Finals. So far this season, things haven’t gone exactly as planned. The Celtics, struggling to get back to .500 and maintain their weak hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, now face the rest of this season without All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo. Has the time finally come to surrender and get whatever assets he can for the 35-year-old Paul Pierce?
