The Celtics are playing like a completely different team than the one that we saw in the first couple months of the season.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge sat down with CSNNE's Greg Dickerson for an exclusive 20-minute interview that touched upon all things Celtics. It will air Wednesday.

In the preview, we have Ainge talking about trade rumors, and with the deadline coming up, it'll continue to be a hot topic. So will the Celtics make a blockbuster move?

"That doesn't make a lot of sense to radically change the team when you're trying to compete to win it all," Ainge told Dickerson. "We have been and will continue to look to upgrade our team, but I think it's always more unlikely that that happens than likely."

But what if the C's hadn't gone on this winning streak? What if they continued to lose in the fashion they were? Would Ainge feel as good about the team's future?

"No, absolutely not," he said. "You have to produce. It's my job to look at the bigger picture. We have to live in the moment and try to win and help our team have success, but at the same time if it;s not happening on the court than there has to be changes made, absolutely."

That's just one minute of the 20-minute interview, so you can imagine that there's plenty of more nuggets to take from Ainge's sit-down.

He talks about what Avery Bradley did to the Celtics upon his return.

He also goes into great depth on what makes Kevin Garnett one of the best players ever in the NBA, and the attitude and preparation that goes into being that.

Rajon Rondo and his responsibility on the team is discussed as well, and much more.

We'll have the full interview up Wednesday on CSNNE.com, and be sure to check out CSNNE's Celtics Pregame Live for it as well!
