If you’re a Celtics fan, do you care if they trade away the # 1 draft choice for # 3? I don’t. Markelle Fultz is a nice player, but he’s not a franchise player. This isn’t Tim Duncan, Lebron James or Lew Alcindor at # 1. They aren’t going to be walking through that door this year.

If the Celtics draft Fultz # 1 fine, if they draft him # 3 that’s fine too. Remember Michael Jordan was drafted # 3. Michael Jordan isn’t going to be walking through that door either!

The Celtics once had the # 1 draft choice and traded it for what turned out to be Robert Parish and Kevin McHale. The # 1 draft choice that year was Joe Barry Carroll. Remember him? I don’t think too many do.

I trust Danny Ainge to do the right thing!
