LeBron James rants about fans burning Isaiah Thomas jerseys

— -- LeBron James is fired up over the idea of fans burning a player's jersey, and he let it be known in a Twitter rant on Thursday.

James posted five tweets on the subject, defending new teammate Isaiah Thomas, who was traded to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night as part of a deal that sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics.

There have been images on social media of Celtics fans burning Thomas' jersey in response to the trade.

Thomas had emerged as the face of the Cetlics' franchise since he arrived at the trade deadline in February 2015.

The Celtics also sent Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 unprotected first-round pick to the Cavaliers in the deal.
