Celtics GM Danny Ainge said on Thursday that Kemba Walker was "never right" at any point in the bubble.
Walker was playing without limitations in the playoffs after the Celtics slowly ramped him up to what was thought to be full strength during their seeding games. His knees, particularly his left knee, dogged him for most of his first season in Boston and getting Walker fully healthy should be an offseason priority. Surgery isn't expected to be part of the plan here and it's unfortunate that the issue popped up in his first real playoff run after Kemba put together a few healthy years following three early career knee surgeries.
