Paul George was drafted to the OKC Thunder last night for a pair mid-level players, Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis who are now on their way to the Indiana Pacers. And the while, Celtics fans are extremely pissed off at their general manager Danny Ainge, and they’re letting him know all about their displeasure online.
The Celtic fans berate their GM for not trying to secure Paul George. One Twitter user has labelled Ainge an asset “hoarder” for his stubborn/foolish ways in trading. Others have doubted his intelligence and abilities. Needless to say, people are pissed at Danny Ainge…
DANNY AINGE TRADED THE NUMBER ONE PICK AND LET THE THUNDER TRADE ONE STARTER AND ONE ROTATION PLAYER FOR A TOP 15 PLAYER. GO HOME DUDE.

Twitter user Joe provides a picture perfect image of this sad Celtic clown…
Meanwhile, Danny Ainge is sitting alone in an office somewhere in Boston, counting assets and pretending he's a genius.

Ainge is still a Blockbuster guy in the age of Netflix.
Danny Ainge could have easily offered more for Paul George, but wasn’t willing to risk likely lottery pick(s) for a one-year rental.

Boy, did Danny miss out..
The Thunder really just got (rental) Paul George AND dumped Oladipo's ludicrous contract all for Domantas Sabonis

We need a meeting to discuss the event’s of last night…
Pat Riley in his meeting with Hayward tomorrow:
"Gordon, firstly & before anything else, Danny Ainge is a pussy and will get you nowhere."

Here’s the hoarder I was talking about…
That's what you get for being a hoarder Danny Ainge

Some are still trying to shake off the shock of stupidity…
Danny Ainge is the guy who sits on a straight flush and somehow walks away with a few big blinds. Unreal.

Danny Ainge was leaking what?
Danny Ainge was leaking YESTERDAY that Indy wanted 2 lottery picks and 2 starters. And some of his media cronies bought it. Unreal. https://t.co/UgIvhFvQk3

Hey, maybe it’ll all work out for the best. Many on the internet don’t think so. But personally, it’s always best to play troll’s advocate…
