You may think it is small potatoes but you aren't a Celtics fan wanting the Big 3 to win one more championship before it all ends just to get a marginal, average player.

And the only way you win in the NBA is to have superstars, the Celtics had 4 and after this season will probably only have 1(Rondo). This team is a long ways from competing again.
I'm talking about small potatoes as in calling for a front office guy's head for a move you don't like, and ignoring the multiple tremendous moves he made prior to that. Especially when those moves led to two championship berths and a championship title.

When the Chiefs were getting older, I didn't like at all that we waited so long to blow up the roster. That led to 5 years of painful rebuilds. So no, I don't blame Ainge at all if he wants maybe a smoother rebuild. Winning with superstars isn't the only way to win. Miami Heat aside, you win with superstars surrounded by a deep, talented supporting cast. The way I see it, the Celtics seem to have a pretty good young supporting cast. The superstars will come, either if the Celtics can finally find themselves again in a lottery situation and when Pierce and Garnett's contracts go away and free up a buttload of money, which can be spent on new superstars. Again, I don't know if Ainge's moves will work, but think it's way too soon to get upset about them. In the Perkins trade, you got a few young guys in exchange for a guy who was leaving anyway. In not replacing Shaq, you didn't tie yourself to a worthless contract, like when the Cavs signed Jamieson as a last ditch effort to get LeBron some guys.
