Ainge For Change: Tough Like His Dad, Tanner Ainge Talks Congress, Tebow, And More
Ainge for three! Yes!!! We heard that call belted out many times from Marv Albert over the years. The Marvelous One was talking about NBA great Danny Ainge hitting three-pointers from all over the court.
Today, these words are ringing true once again but we’re not talking about basketball or Danny Ainge. Instead it’s Tanner Ainge, Danny’s son, who’s running for the House of Representatives out of Utah. The three is District 3, which the younger Ainge would represent if elected. Even though it’s not hoops, Ainge is in a fight that would rival NBA action. The good news for Utah is Tanner Ainge is just as tough as his dad.
Danny Ainge is known for his work ethic and hard nosed approach to basketball. As a player, he reached the NBA Finals with the Boston Celtics, Portland Trail Blazers, and Phoenix Suns–winning two world championships with the Celts. Ainge added another ring as an executive with Boston in 2008. The former NBA All-Star and current Celtics GM is a winner. Perhaps his greatest achievement however, is what he’s done off the court, Ainge and his wife have raised a beautiful, successful family. The six Ainge kids have all gone on to do special things, with Tanner Ainge’s run for Congress just the latest addition to a long list of achievements.
With Jason Chaffetz resigning, a special election is being held in Utah to replace him. After 22 candidates threw their respective hats into the ring, the field has been whittled down to three hopefuls. Tanner Ainge is still standing.
