Pat Riley Thinks Danny Ainge Should "Shut The Fuck Up And Manage His Own Team"

Yesterday, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said that it was "almost embarrassing" that LeBron James had complained about a few hard fouls he received during Wednesday's Heat-Bulls game. Heat president Pat Riley did not take kindly to Ainge expressing his opinion, and he just issued the following statement through a Heat official:

Danny Ainge needs to shut the fuck up and manage his own team. He was the biggest whiner when he was playing, and I know that because I coached against him.


Man, Riley is pissed. It's not every day that a team president drops an bomb on a rival executive via an official statement to the media. This kind of thing should definitely happen more often.
