Is Danny Ainge a victim of his own success? He did such a good job building the Big Three that fueled two NBA Finals (and one title), and then trading tow of them for picks, that it seems as though he is now reluctant to pull the trigger on a deal for fear that it won’t work out as well as those did. I understand the reluctance to take on Boogie’s attitude, but with the Cavs being weakened by injuries and Jimmy Butler available, their hesitation to pull the trigger is baffling. Draft pics are nice but the whole point of picks is to turn them into productive players (via trade or via the draft), and this opportunity is right there for Boston.
