Departure from Celtics 'still hurts' Thomas

Adjust Comment Print

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas recently broke his silence following the blockbuster deal from the Boston Celtics, and through a Players' Tribune piece said that his former team "did not get better by making this trade".

The 5-foot-9 point guard reiterated his love for Boston and how much he will miss the fans there, going so far as to say he's still hurt by the trade, but can't wait to get on the floor with four-time league MVP James. Thomas apparently has a lot of respect for LeBron James, and it seems he is very excited to be his teammate next season. That's it, Isaiah Thomas just declared war on the entire National Basketball Association and they better get ready to fight back. So for me, this is Isaiah Thomas confirming that he is still dealing with the hip injury.

"But this year ... man, it's not even going to be a thing".

What still stings, Thomas writes, is that after a "good luck" text from Boston sports legend and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Thomas won't be able to leave a lasting legacy on the city of Boston like he planned.

"LEBRON! LEBRON JAMES! Dad - Dad". You really going to throw three guys on me, when I'm sharing a court with the best basketball player on the planet?

However, since it's not officially available in the United Kingdom , you'll need to pay a little over the odds to obtain one. At that time, it had partnered with Indian smartphone makers such as Micromax , Spice and Karbonn to launch Android One.

In fact, the players that now constitute Boston's Big Three - Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward - are all here in part because of Thomas' play (Irving) and ability to convince them (Horford and Hayward) to come to Boston and be part of something special.

He didn't hold back in his message, and made sure to get one point across - that he doesn't hold a grudge: "I wasn't wronged".

Crowder's emotions had been all over the place since the end of the season, when the Celtics signed free agent forward Gordon Hayward and then drafted forward Jayson Tatum out of Duke.

I'm a Clevelander. To learn that Kyrie Irving wanted to be traded so he could "shine more" on his own team away from LBJ made me sad. So maybe, I don't know ... maybe that's something to be proud of.
