Isaiah Thomas says he’s good with Celtics president Danny Ainge now
Isaiah Thomas clearly didn’t want to talk to Danny Ainge when the Celtics president called to inform Thomas he’d been traded to the Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving. Later, Thomas said he might never talk to Ainge again.
With Thomas returning to Boston for – but not playing in – tonight’s Celtics-Cavs game, apparently tension has cooled.
Thomas, via NBC Sports Boston:
Grudges usually aren’t worth holding. Ainge gave Thomas an opportunity to become an All-Star, and Thomas seized it. It was a mutually beneficial relationship.
Thomas saved his harshest words for former teammate Marcus Smart. NBC Sports Boston:
I love Marcus Smart, even though he flops all the time.
