Danny Ainge: Isaiah Thomas 'Part of Celtic History Forever'

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge chats with Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas after an NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks Thursday Feb. 25 2016 in Boston. The Celtics won 112-107

That's not right. I'm not saying '(expletive) you.' But every team in this situation comes out a year or two later and says, 'We made a mistake'.

Initially, there were clear indications that the point guard and the Celtics fans were unhappy with the trade, but slowly, Thomas accepted he now had to play for the Cavaliers despite everything he had given to Boston.

"I've been looking at this wall for five hours", Celtics coach Brad Stevens texted Thomas after the trade, "trying to figure out what to say to you".

"Boston is going to be all love", Thomas said. He said he would but he couldn't say if Thomas felt the same way.

In a new story by Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins, Thomas discussed his feelings toward the Celtics after being traded from Boston to Cleveland.

Entering a contract year, there is a ton of uncertainty surrounding Thomas' basketball future.

His condition got worse, and he was ineffective for two games against the Cavaliers in the conference finals before shutting it down. "(The Cavs) hadn't even seen one of my MRIs, and they were acting like I was damaged, like this might ruin my career. At home, I'd just sit around and think about my sister, which hurt. But mentally it messed with me.

"I was a player that was traded twice", Ainge told ESPN's Chris Forsberg, "so I understand his sentiments".

As for the the trials and tribulations he's referring to, Thomas is talking about his loyalty to the Celtics and helping them reach the Eastern Conference finals despite losing his sister to a auto accident the day before the playoffs began.

After Thomas's comments were published, Ainge was asking what he thought.

"I would try to, but I have no idea", said Ainge.

"That's the hard part of the job", Ainge said at Wednesday's Shamrock Foundation charity golf tournament. "He's a great kid and I wish him the best". Thomas, 28, also finished fifth in the Most Valuable Player (MVP) voting, besides making the All-NBA Second Team.
