Video: Danny Ainge Tries Throwing Hickson Off

by May 05, 2010

Look at the man in the dark jacket behind the basket. Before the first of two freebies in Game 2, he gets out of his seat right as JJ Hickson lets the ball go. Not done yet, the man throws up a towel as the second shot goes up. Who’s “the man?” None other than Boston GM Danny Ainge.

Was this a case of gamesmanship gone too far? Either way, credit Hickson for not getting too flustered, sinking the second shot as the towel landed.
