he didnt trade marshon brooks, he traded the rights to marshon brooks. Theres a difference because he was never going to draft brooks, brooks wasnt on his radar according to everyone.it was probably a decision between jajuan and chandler parsons.
The 2008 off-season in general. Drafting Giddens, bringing in POB, not finding an adequate replacement for Posey, etc.Not re-signing Tony was a mistake, especially since our lack of a backup SF caused us to tank our championship hopes by trading Perk.
For me it's easily drafting J.R. Giddens over Deandre Jordan, how do you pass on a guy with as high a ceiling as Jordan late in the first round? That's the ideal place to draft a project.But since everyone keeps saying the same thing, how about when the Celtics traded the 7th pick in the draft (Randy Foye) for Sebastian Telfair. Rudy Gay was selected at pick 8. Brandon Roy was selected at pick 6 for Portland by Minnesota who got Foye. Of course, DA did trade into the first round to select Rondo in that draft, but did he really know what he was selecting in Rondo? The idea was for Telfair to start after all.The blessing in disguise in that deal of course was the Celtics acquired Theo Ratliff in the trade who later became the contract needed for the KG deal.Need a little bit of luck to be good as a GM.

Too many seasons of "not going all in" with KG, Pierce, Ray and Rondo.
I think you guys making the Giddens/Jordan case are on point, but everyone is going to miss on most diamonds in the rough and we've had a nice success rate overall. We could equally well fault Ainge for not identifying Jeremy Lin back when he was an unknown everywhere except for Boston, for example.
