Danny Ainge used his first-ever tweet to support a great cause.
The Boston Celtics’ president of basketball operations joined the Twitter world Wednesday night and — with a hand from a few of his young grandchildren — completed the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS.

Before his dousing, Ainge chose to nominate Celtics co-owners Wyc Grousbeck and Stephen Pagliuca, Houston Rockets head coach — and former Celtics teammate — Kevin McHale and the 80,000 people currently serving a Mormon mission.
Ainge is the latest of long line of Celtics to complete the challenge, including Jeff Green, Kelly Olynyk, rookies Marcus Smart and James Young, and head coach Brad Stevens.
UPDATE (2:25 p.m.): Grousbeck accepted Ainge’s challenge Thursday afternoon.
