Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas took to the Road Trippin’ podcast and clarified his comments on Celtics president Danny Ainge, a man he said that he would never talk to again because of the way he treated him on his way out of Boston, in his own way. “People took it the wrong way,” Thomas, expected...

In fact, it’s the exact stance Thomas is going take to begin his post-Celtics days. “I might not ever talk to Danny again...
