When the Miami Heat had their winning streak snapped against the Chicago Bulls, Heat star LeBron James complained to the media regarding a few plays during the game that LeBron thought should have been called as fouls. James is used to physical play, but he went on to talk about how it goes a little too far sometimes.
So, naturally, Danny Ainge decided to chime in. The President of Basketball Operations said that it was “almost embarrassing” that the league’s best player was complaining about not getting calls.
To continue the story, Pat Riley then responded to Danny Ainge in quite the fashion. Via Deadspin:
Danny Ainge needs to shut the **** up and manage his own team. He was the biggest whiner when he was playing, and I know that because I coached against him.
Well, ok then!
The Boston Celtics always try to get under the Miami Heat’s skin, both on and off the court. This has to be what Ainge had in mind when he spoke out, and Riley clearly had enough of the talk.
Players such as Jason Terry and Paul Pierce have been talking nonstop about how they’re not afraid of the defending champions the way the rest of the league is.
This should certainly add a little bit more fun to a Celtics/Heat playoff series, if we ever get to see one.
Or maybe we should just have Danny Ainge and Pat Riley go at it for a week straight. Either way would be entertaining.
