In the article that came out on Wednesday, September 6 (Thursday in Manila), Thomas opened up about everything that went on during the trade - from getting the fateful phone call from general manager Danny Ainge, to breaking the news to his family, and all the emotions that transpired in between.
While the reactions of his children were said to be most important to him, the piece also gives us some details about how Thomas found out about the trade. "Nah, I don't think so", he wrote.
In the middle of his heartfelt goodbye to the team and the city he came to love over the past few years, Isaiah Thomas dropped a few lines that have me more hyped than ever for the National Basketball Association season to begin. LeBron James has given no indication of his plans beyond this upcoming season, and by keeping the pick, the Cavaliers can rebuild right away if he decides to leave. When you talk about a part of the body such as your hip, it plays a huge role in your mobility and jumping ability.
"When I say this hurts, man - just know that it isn't because of anything anyone else did".
A new chapter is about to begin in Isaiah Thomas' career and what a story it has been so far for him. He finished fifth in the MVP voting, made the All-Star team, but when the offseason came, he got traded. This is going to be a great year to be a Cavs fan, a great year. Best of luck. You're gonna do great.
The video culminates with film of Thomas putting up shots in a Cleveland practice jersey, with posters of him in Boston gear in the background. It may not be that Thomas is not a good defender it just makes it hard when you are six inches shorter than the average point guard.
Isaiah Thomas is in the process of cutting ties with his current agency, Excel Sports Management, in hopes of securing a new agent for the 2018 free-agency process, according to ESPN's Chris B. Haynes. So maybe, I don't know. maybe that's something to be proud of. I made it clear to the organization that I was concerned about it and just wanted more direction.
