Oh why did you move KG and why did you move Paul Pierce that's that's the most popular question we've received so far. Read my -- I'd like government Pol Pot. In your opinion Danny is it almost. Does it do you almost have to play against your nature. -- -- -- not be more aggressive the you have to say well wait a minute Danny that deal doesn't make us any better as much as I'd like to do something.

OK Pete on eagle. On. -- You try and have. I. OK that's fair but it. But isn't it also fair to say there are if Danny and Danny Ainge says he would he would have done those deals when he wasn't the general manager. Of the Celtics now that -- the general manager of the Celtics. Perhaps he would try to make a deal at the end of the careers into the hall of fame careers of Kevin Garnett Paul Pierce. Yet all. I don't think you bought it because of all the players. That. They have agreed. -- -- -- -- -- -- You -- different you don't give them away you don't like hundred. Not you know he beat out UT and great value -- and by the way. Kevin -- all there are playing much better. At eight career and Mary war as being so. All. We were terrible with Kevin in the area.

Our effort and sort of getting a report. That we -- We're really close you back together and -- on the assessment that's where you ever. Close to making some of the deals that were reported everywhere you -- conversations with the clippers and they approach you did you approach them. Well. That's -- -- and get into I think it compromise. Integrity -- my relationship went on an album called -- I had never -- And I'll never anything. Aren't going to be brought Kevin content proved. In your opinion I've been trying to figure this out in your opinion. What do you think Kevin. He started saying publicly probably two or three weeks ago that he. He wanted to wanted to live green wants to die -- wants to be very -- and it's up to him he'll stay here. Do you think you start saying that publicly because candidates it's a no trade clause so. -- Publically. -- and all of -- -- What -- -- -- -- one. On. Like you are in helping. -- all.

It is to win a championship during the year right now. All our. -- -- -- -- Trying to get healthy and get the playoffs. He would do we can do. And so I was gonna think about you but now all of a sudden there -- a connection to clear connection. This is great 01 more thing about Crawford a lot of people. Flip Saunders it's familiar with the used to coach -- said he got his his problem is confidence sometimes overconfidence. And shot selection do you think that's the issue really that good athlete but he human around 40% you think it's either you can't shoot album that's the issue. Or is that shots that he takes what do you think. I -- the comedy I think it really calm. Out a lot of them. In. Europe where he'd -- That's up. About her. At number one and number two spot. -- Or more rock bottom of the hour. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Our general willow will go along with you next week it's a little tough to hear you but we are we still have some questions worrisome next week.
