After LeBron James complained about calls and Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge chided him for it, Riley lashed back Friday night.
Riley's response: ``Danny Ainge needs to shut the (expletive) up and manage his own team.''
This saga started Wednesday after Miami's 27-game winning streak ended in Chicago. James told reporters that night that he does not believe some of the hard fouls he takes are ``basketball plays.'' A day later, Ainge told Boston radio station WEEI that ``it's almost embarrassing that LeBron would complain about officiating.''
Riley was clearly irked, calling Ainge ``the biggest whiner going when he was a player.''
The Heat and Celtics play April 12 in Miami.
