Isaiah Thomas was approaching superstardom status in Boston. He gave everything he had to this city. He’s played hurt, sick, and even when his sister passed away. The little guy was relentless and continued time and time again to be clutch.
Thomas was dealt to the Cavaliers where he will be a distant second fiddle to LeBron James. You almost have to feel bad for him because you just know he’s going to be used as a doormat by LBJ.
Then I saw this text convo and it just made me sad because this is Isaiah’s reality. This kid having a chat with his mom about some new Cavs gear, it’s funny and sad all at the same time:Poor Isaiah, everyone’s gotta Google him just to find out who he is. Not only does she not know who it is, but she thinks he’s a little kid. All these new Cavs fans that have come back to liking basketball again since LeBron’s comeback need to educate themselves and their moms on the legend of Isaiah. One day they’ll find out that that little guy has bigger heart than LeBron dreamed of ever having. Our thoughts and prayers are with Isaiah in Cleveland. Hopefully the Browns welcome you with open arms like the Patriots did.
