Take it easy on ’em, Danny Ainge!

Boston Celtics President Danny Ainge is regarded as one of the canniest front office operators in the NBA.

Buoyed by his stunning swindling of the Brooklyn Nets in the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce trade, Ainge has taken risk after risk and gamble after gamble, with almost all of them paying off.
