Isaiah Thomas Opens Up: "Worst Year Of My Life"

Isaiah Thomas Opens Up:

And the Cavaliers guard clearly isn't in a forgiving mood, as evidenced by his interview with Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins. He led his former team, the Boston #Celtics, to the conference finals while overcoming much adversity physically and mentally, but he still was dealt by the Celtics front office to the Cavs in exchange for Kyrie Irving. "That's what makes it really tough, and the emotional feel you have for the guys that are now gone".

"None of it made any sense", he added.

"I'm not saying eff you", Thomas said.

If you told someone at the end of last season that Isaiah Thomas would be playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017-18 campaign, they would have thought you were joking, as he seemed to be Boston Celtics through and through.

Thomas' comment about what he "went through" was a reference to his efforts in helping the Celtics reach the Eastern Conference finals despite losing his sister to a vehicle accident the day before the playoffs began, and then playing through a right hip injury that ultimately sidelined him. But what he did, knowing everything I went through, you don't do that, bro. Thomas has a long road ahead of him before he takes the court, but he is planning to make the Celtics, specifically, their GM#Danny Ainge, regret the day they traded away the all-pro guard. But every team in this situation comes out a year or two later and says, 'We made a mistake.' That's what they'll say, too.

Thomas helped recruit Gordon Hayward to Boston, thinking he'd be the piece the Celtics needed to get past the Cavs in the East.

It felt like Thomas had developed something special with the city of Boston and with the Celtics fans, and to see him let go so unceremoniously in order to acquire Irving was a surprise to many, Thomas included. I'll talk to everybody else.

Apparently, Thomas believed he would have surgery and begin rehab, but a hip specialist prescribed rest instead.

"No doubt about it, I should have sat out the playoffs", Thomas told Jenkins. "I'm not damaged, I'm just injured". Thomas called it the best year of his basketball career, but the worst year of his life. "We were right there".
