Isaiah Thomas says the he may never speak with Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge again. Thomas was extremely upset with how the Celtics organization handled the trade over the off-season that sent him to the Cleveland Cavaliers. After saying “Boston is going to be all love,” Thomas went on to explain that his frustration lies with Danny Ainge who failed to communicate with Thomas what was going on.
Thomas has the right to be upset after choosing to play for the team the day after his sister died last post-season. After laying it all on the line for the team, Thomas was hoping that the franchise would remain loyal to him or at the very least communicate clearly about the trade talks. The news was reported by Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated who also reported that Thomas played through his hip injury during the playoffs which caused him extreme pain and delayed the recovery process.
I might not ever talk to Danny again. That might not happen. I’ll talk to everybody else. But what he did, knowing everything I went through, you don’t do that, bro. That’s not right. I’m not saying eff you. But every team in this situation comes out a year or two later and says, ‘We made a mistake.’ That’s what they’ll say, too.
PG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Last season, Thomas put up career numbers with the Celtics averaging 28.9 PPG, 5.9 APG, 2.7 RPG while playing 32.8 minutes per game. Isaiah wen on to say “The nice thing about the Cavs is nobody is in a rush.” He seems to still love the city of Boston, just has hard feelings toward Danny Ainge. It will be interesting to see how the Celtics fans treat him in his homecoming.
