How Confident Are You In Danny Ainge?

The 2011 NBA Draft is tonight and in case you missed it, Danny isn't all that excited about who he can get at pick 25.  If we had a collective bargaining agreement (we don't and we probably won't for a while) then we would be starting the free agency period soon.  Here's what Ainge said about that.

Celtics know their limits - The Boston Globe

"We have a long list of guys that will be our priorities,’’ Ainge said. "In free agency, the challenge is to get out of the gate fast and to try let everybody know how much you like them and how much you want them to come. "With our contractual obligations with players, we don’t have a lot to go chase free agents. We have to try to get free agents that want to come play here for maybe a little bit less money in some cases and chase a lot of minimum contracts like we did last year with Shaq. Free agency is a challenging ordeal, and we’ll be prepared for it.’’

So the question that I have for you is "how confident are you in Danny Ainge to make the right decisions for this team this offseason?"

On one side of the spectrum, Danny rightfully gets full credit for orchestrating the deals to bring about Banner 17.  On the other end of the spectrum, he might have kiboshed the effort for Banner 18 last year with the Perkins deal.  Over the years Ainge has had lots of other trades, draft picks, and free agent deals.  Some worked out (Rondo, Posey), some did not (LaFrentz, Blount) and some were just treading water (Gary Payton, Ricky Davis).

I could go on (and on) about this, but that's another article for another time.  I just want to take the pulse of fans today.  How confident are you in Ainge?

Update: I love the power of polls.  If you just listened to the vocal minority, you'd think that everyone had completely lost faith in Danny Ainge.  But the numbers indicate otherwise.
