Isaiah Thomas Clarifies Comments About Giving Danny Ainge Cold Shoulder

Isaiah Thomas doesn’t have a vendetta against Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. He’d just prefer not to run into him anytime soon.

The former Celtics point guard has some hard feelings for Ainge after the team traded him to the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason in a package that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston. Thomas told Sports Illustrated in a profile published Wednesday he “might not ever talk to Danny again.”

But Thomas said on a recent episode of Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye’s podcast “Road Trippin’ with RJ & Channin” that his comment wasn’t as serious as people made it out to be.

Sounds pretty reasonable to us.

However, some Celtics fans might take issue with his assertion that the Cavs will win the NBA Finals, as Boston is Cleveland’s main competitor in the Eastern Conference.

Everyone will get a taste of how things might work out Tuesday night when the Celtics and Cavs square off in Cleveland at 8 p.m. ET on NBA Opening Night.
