“Danny Ainge needs to shut the f— up and manage his own team,” Riley said in a statement issued by the team. “He was the biggest whiner going when he was playing and I know that because I coached against him.”
“I stand by what I said. That’s all. I don’t care about Pat Riley. He can say whatever he wants,” Ainge said in the runway shortly before the game.
Did he object to Riley calling him a whiner?
“What Pat said, that I whined and that I should manage my own team, is true,” Ainge said. “And what I said, that LeBron should be embarrassed about complaining about the officiating, is true.”
Ainge said he would keep it at the verbal level. Wearing frayed blue jeans and sneakers, he said, “I don’t want to mess up his Armani suits and all that hair goop. It would be way too expensive for me.”
