Danny Ainge was one of the best basketball players in the history of Brigham Young University (BYU). He won the Wooden Award as the college player of the year in 1981, but seemed intent on pursuing baseball as a career. He joined the Toronto Blue Jays minor league organization, but after batting only .220 over several seasons, he joined the Boston Celtics of the NBA. He was involved in the NBA Finals 4 times ('84, '86, '92, '93) and played with Boston, Sacramento, Portland, and Phoenix, winning two championships in the process, and averaging 11 points per game over a career, with a career high of 17.9ppg in 1989-90. He later became a coach for Portland and Phoenix, and is now the Executive Director of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics (2003).
