That's the thing. Expectations for Rivers were very low because the team was horrible, but he was amiable and classy and was willing to endure a rebuild. The Garnett/Allen trade was not part of the original plan, but the rebuilding wasn't working, so Ainge had to do something to shake things up. And McHale helped him out.
Ventura was hired as the antidote for Ozzie. He's amiable and classy and willing to endure a rebuild. Problem is, Garnett and Allen are not going to walk through that door.
