Isaiah Thomas backpedals from comments in ESPN story

In the November issue of ESPN the Magazine, Isaiah Thomas is quoted a saying he doesn’t who plays for Arizona State or who coaches the USC Trojans.
According to the magazine, Thomas said: “I think of Reggie Bush and football when I think of that school, not basketball. I don’t even know who their coach is.”
On ASU, Thomas reportedly said: “I don’t even know who’s on that team anymore. They’re slow. They play so slow it’s draining to play against them.”
On his Twitter account last night, Thomas clarified his comments.
