Suddenly, all the Celtics’ problems – their Game 2 loss to the Bucks, their internal bickering, their inconsistent play – seem trivial.
Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, suffered a heart attack in Milwaukee.
Ainge, 60, also suffered a heart attack 10 years ago. Glad to hear he’s again expected to make a full recovery, but this is still scary.
Ainge is one of the NBA’s top executives. He has built and rebuilt Boston into a contender. The Celtics are already good and loaded with resources to get even better.
Hopefully, Ainge is up for it.
