Rajon Rondo Irked About Celtics’ Honoring Isaiah Thomas


When the Cleveland Cavaliers played the Boston Celtics in Boston on January 4, Isaiah Thomas wasn’t playing due to him recovering from injury. This led to the Boston Celtics rescheduling a tribute video and honoring to their next meeting on February 11.

The February 11 game will also feature the jersey retirement for long time Celtics’ star Paul Pierce, who didn’t like both events to take place on one day… his day. Pierce said:


“(Thomas) had a shot to be honored,” Pierce said. “You came to Boston. Whether you are playing or not, you should have had your tribute then. I just don’t see how, if someone is having a jersey retirement, they’re going to be running other tributes for other players.

“Danny (Ainge) tried to sell me on it, but I told him, ‘He had a shot, Danny, and he punked you on it. He pretty much dictated everything.’ They let it happen because they felt sorry how (the trade to Cleveland) went down. It’s guilt. That’s what it is.”


Pierce’s former teammate, Rajon Rondo, also isn’t a fan of the Celtics’ plan to honor Thomas, but for a different reason. Rondo simply thinks that Isaiah isn’t deserving.
