Rick Pitino is frequently maligned for the job he did during his tenure with the Boston Celtics.

Pitino had a 102-146 record with the Celtics.

“You know, I traded Chauncey Billups and then he was traded two more times," said Pitino. "And he eventually landed on his feet and became the point guard he knew he could be. Of all the stops I made, Boston probably molded me into the coach I wanted to become. So for me, it wasn’t a negative experience, it was a very positive one, one that made me complete as a coach.”
