In a long, detailed interview (via Celtics Blog) in which Danny discusses things like KG's knee (there are no staples in there), his heart attack (he's feeling pretty good), and Rondo's attitude (the guys really like him)… we self-centered pricks here at the Red's Army office focused on this:
"People were trying to read between the lines,"
Ainge said. "All of a sudden the talk shows and the bloggers are
saying, 'Oh! (Ainge) said he's not a (maximum-contract) player! What

everything's untrue. It's hard to sift through it because so much is
false. But at the same time, I understand it generates all sorts of
excitement. I have to separate myself from a fan to being a leader of

It's actually a good approach. Although it's tough for me to believe that you don't read these sites when you state in the previous quote what all the blogs were saying.
Admit it Danny… you love us. How can you not? We're so cute and cuddly. Chuck spends his spare time reading to the elderly… and I teach inner-city youth how to use the power of ballroom dancing to get past racial and societal barriers.
Wait… that was Antonio Banderas.
