Isaiah Thomas Really Wants To Come Back To The Boston Celtics


It is fair to say Isaiah Thomas had the best seasons of his career in Boston, especially in the 2016-17 season as he continued to blow all our minds away carrying the Celtics to the 1st seed with his elite offensive arsenal and playmaking abilities. Being in top 5 for MVP rankings and making 2nd All-Team NBA at 5”9 was extraordinary to see. However, this form came to an end after his severe hip injury and a trade deal sending him to Cleveland.

On the 24th of August, the Boston Celtics acquired All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers for point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 unprotected first-round pick. Many debated who won the trade and it was hard to say. Everyone had different opinions on it and there wasn’t a clear winner. Until the season started. Because of his hip surgery, he did not play for the Cavaliers until weeks into the season. Then after 15 games with the team, they dealt him to the Los Angeles Lakers, reportedly because he wasn’t a good fit in the locker room.

This summer, Isaiah Thomas is looking to take his talents to a team that needs a player who can create his own shot and provides some promising scoring off the bench. He has stated in many teams he would be interested to go back to Celtics. He is an Instagram post about it.

But, Imagine that? Kyrie for Thomas, Crowder, Zizic, and the Nets pick. After one season the Cavs have Collin Sexton, and the Celtics have Kyrie and Isaiah on their team. What a turn around that would be. But, Celtics wouldn’t offer anywhere near a high amount as what Thomas expects. Also, with Kyrie on the starting point-guard spot, Thomas may not be pleased to fill in the role of a bench player.
