I doubt Ainge is hurting from helping Joe...he just won a title and would have been the front runner for outpacing Joe in GM title wins if Garnett had not gotten hurt. Ainge is in a pretty good spot. He just realizes the writing is on the wall here in the D. Everyone is sick of our roster and is crying for everyone to be dealt regardless of talent and he was trying to see if that sentiment went all the way to the top here. He obviously air balled shooting for Stuckey. Perhaps he missed the anointing.
