Danny Ainge declares Boston Celtics not good enough to win championship

Ahn Fire Digital

Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge made a surprising admission on Thursday.

The executive believes the Celtics are not good enough to win a championship at the moment.

The Celtics made the Eastern Conference Finals last year.

However, they haven’t portrayed the same contention potential this season. The Celtics hold a 14-14 record. They’re the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference.

On Wednesday, the Celtics lost to the Atlanta Hawks by a score of 122-114. Celtics star Jayson Tatum put up 35 points, six rebounds and six assists in the loss.

The Celtics have faced numerous issues this season. Most notably, COVID-19 health and safety protocols have forced players to miss games and the team to reschedule contests.

Tatum, who contracted the novel coronavirus earlier this season, recently explained how the virus is still affecting his health.
