Nothing could have made me happier than reading those words this morning. Of course it still could be spin but I tend to believe it when he makes such a direct comment like that. Here's some more quotes:
"I think it’s unlikely," Ainge said of trading up. "It’s possible, but unlikely."
Though Ainge declined to discuss the rumors involving Rondo, a team source sniffed at the speculation involving the young floor leader, saying, "Rondo’s not going to be traded."
As for the speculation that the Celtics are trying to make moves now that will clear space for a shot at a member of 2010’s highly anticipated free agent class, Ainge said, "We’re trying to win a championship next season. That’s my goal this summer."
