Danny Ainge doesn’t have doom-and-gloom outlook for Boston

Danny Ainge, Kyrie Irving, Celtics

This season has been filled with ups and downs for the Boston Celtics, but for team owner Danny Ainge, although he hoped that the team could have performed better, he’s also not to worried about the negatives, according to his interview with Celtics reporter Chris Forberg.

“It’s not as gloomy and doomy to me. I see a lot of good things happening … Statistically, in a lot of ways, we are better than in our [53] and 55-win seasons, and I believe that we are. Time will tell.”

Boston is currently fifth in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 43-29. Before this season began, they were seen as one of the few teams who can take down the Golden State Warriors. While they have shown flashes of what they can do against the top contenders, they haven’t been consistent enough to convince people that they have what it takes to dethrone the back-to-back champions.

Still, Ainge isn’t too worried about the status of his team. Win or lose, a lot of people believe that he has bigger plans this offseason; one of them, is trading for New Orleans PelicansAnthony Davis.

But he will also have to deal with the looming free agency of Kyrie Irving, and the All-Star guard’s decision on whether to stay with the franchise or not will highly depend on the outcome of this season.

Ainge has a lot to think about. He may not show it publicly, but tough decisions has to be made sooner or later.
