Maybe it’s time to stop giving Ainge credit for having every foresight in the world.
Brandon Anderson

Occam’s Razor would tell you that Ainge, whose job it is to have a plan to build an NBA team into a contender, absolutely has some sort of plan. That plan at the moment was to acquire young talent and draft picks from aging expensive talent. I’m not sure the two things are mutually exclusive, other than your part about “not being able to make up his mind”, which implies him to be a poor GM. Of course, if his job is to have a plan to build a team into a contender and he’s done so, implying he can’t make up his mind and is a poor GM who has gotten lucky is decidedly against Occam’s Razor-it attributes a more complicated explanation than the simpler “he’s doing well at his job.”
