Cavs Player: 'Danny Ainge is a F*cking Thief'

LeBron James 'I've defeated the odds'

LeBron James 'I've defeated the odds'

In retrospect, that's probably a better deal than the Celtics' package. While Irving is celebrating on the sidelines with his teammates during the Eastern Conference Finals tilt, the Cavaliers look like a team that are firmly on the ropes with the series shifting to Cleveland.

Ainge then expanded on his thoughts regarding the trade, alluding to Cleveland's subsequent decision to trade both Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder to the Lakers after acquiring them in the Irving deal.

"Danny Ainge is a f-ing thief", Lloyd recalls the player saying to him after an ugly loss.

And, while rather vulgar and brazen, it's hard to argue with the unnamed player - especially given the way things played out on Tuesday night.

According to a recent report, if LeBron James and Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue had gotten their way last summer, Tuesday night may have gone quite differently.

Could MVP candidate James Harden left and Chris Paul of the Rockets dethrone the Warriors

Thomas had finished fifth in voting for the NBA Most Valuable Player in 2017 and had averaged 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game.

Whenever any of those three [Clarkson, Hood, Nance] have been on the floor in these playoffs, the Cavs have been outscored by 164 points. The Indians, in not acting to fortify (primarily because of financial constraints) what had been the most unique and reliable piece of the last two years, let the hole in the pen remain.The Cavs, in trading their second-best player without getting the return he was worth, failed by commission, acting when some would say no action was the best course. Although Irving has not played this postseason after he underwent knee surgery over a month ago, the Cavs have virtually nothing left to show for dealing him. The Nets pick was not even as good as the Cavaliers hoped it would be.

And, to somehow make matters worse, the coveted Brooklyn Nets first-round draft pick that was a key inclusion in the Irving deal only landed the Cavs a No. 8 pick during Tuesday night's lottery.
