On the morning after the Celtics' Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals, Danny Ainge was faced with questions regarding the team's plans for the offseason.
Of course, Marcus Smart's future in Boston was a popular topic of discussion as the scrappy Celtics guard heads into restricted free agency.
Asked about how Smart fits into the Celtics' "big picture" moving forward, Ainge cracked the perfect joke. . .
Asked about how Marcus Smart fits into the “big picture,” Danny Ainge doesn’t skip a beat: “Other than the big picture in his bathroom in LA, it was a pretty good year.” pic.twitter.com/te6EgCLviG— Nicole Yang (@nicolecyang) May 28, 2018
In case you're wondering where Ainge's "big picture in the bathroom in LA" joke came from, Smart injured his hand in January when he punched a picture frame at the team's hotel following a loss to the Lakers.
Ainge just couldn't help himself.
