Danny Ainge Rumors

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge was asked about Tommy’s statement Thursday morning on Toucher & Rich, and while he wouldn’t say if he’d put IT in the Top 5, he did said that Thomas and teammate Avery Bradley are certainly among the best competitors the franchise has seen. “Tommy gets very excited in the middle of a game. I would have to say, I think Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley are every bit the competitors that I was around in my time with the Celtics. They’re fantastic competitors and compete night in and night out,” said Ainge. “They’re one of the top guard tandems [in the NBA]. I don’t even know who is better. Every night, those guys give their all against every back court in the NBA.”
