Cohen 8-Ball: If There Were No Draft Lottery

Return to Around the Association Home


Josh Cohen’s Analysis (Jan. 26, 2014): Some forget just how much of a calamity the 2006-07 season was for the Celtics.

Fortunately for Boston, Danny Ainge’s crafty front office work spawned a championship team. But before acquiring Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, injuries and inexperience plummeted the C’s to the bottom of the East.

If record determined draft order, it would have been the C’s grooming Durant. Yet interestingly, the addition of KD would have likely deterred Boston from forming its Big Three.
