Cavs Player: ‘Danny Ainge is a F*cking Thief’

by May 17, 2018

The Kyrie Irving trade hasn’t exactly worked out for Cleveland, and the blockbuster swap was never far from Cavs players’ minds as they trudged through a frustrating regular season.

One player colorfully told a reporter that Boston Celtics president of basketball ops Danny AingeΒ stole the superstar point guard.

In exchange for Kyrie last summer, the Cs sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, the No. 8 pick in the 2018 Draft, and a 2020 second-round pick.

Per The Athletic:

β€œDanny Ainge is a f*cking thief,” he said. No explanation needed.
