Danny Ainge conceded that the the Boston Celtics don't have a roster capable of winning a title this season.
"I do not," said Ainge when posted the question on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
“Our roster obviously is not good. I mean, we are a 14-14 team. There’s no if’s, and’s or but’s about it. That’s who we are,” said Ainge. “This team, where we are, 14-14, if there’s somebody to blame, this is Danny Ainge to blame. This is not Brad Stevens. It’s not Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown. It’s like not good enough right now. And we all know that. And, you know, we need to get better.”
Ainge was asked what can be done to turn things around.
“I think that the easy answer is obviously we haven’t played [as] well as we expected,” Ainge said. “But – and this is not a spin and this is not an excuse – I’m just saying that our starting team – that we envision as a starting team – has played 20 minutes all year. We just haven’t gotten any sort of consistent flow or groove. We’ve had great moments, good games, good wins, and just a lot of stinkers.”
