Things certainly haven’t been going the way many thought the Boston Celtics season would. It’s obvious Brad Stevens and Marcus Smart are frustrated with the team’s 10-10 record, but one higher up isn’t panicking just yet.
President of basketball operations Danny Ainge has been around long enough to know what the C’s are doing now isn’t permanent. There’s still plenty of time for Boston to turn its season around and live up to the wildly high expectations many had going into the 2018-19 campaign.
“I’ve been through this many, many years, and I’m not impatient,” Ainge said, via the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett “I feel like obviously I know the frustrations our players have felt and the ups and downs that we’ve had through this season so far.
“But I think that we all know we should be doing more and doing better and are capable of it,” he added. “That’s pretty much all I’ll say about it.”
Ainge, like many other Celtics fans, know the team has more potential than what they’ve recently been showcasing. And fans certainly should trust Ainge. After all, he’s looking more and more like a genius for drafting Jayson Tatum over Markelle Fultz.
