"Listen, Doc did a great job for us and I'll always be grateful for what he's done," said Ainge. "But because we struggled in the first few years of Doc's tenure -- struggled mightily -- I think people sort of get it, and understand that it's not always the coach. Now Doc's going to a team that's going to win 65 games. They won  games last year with injuries; Chris Paul missed  games. They won 17 in a row, and [now] their team is better. It's upgraded significantly, in my opinion.
