Former Lakers point guard Isaiah Thomas has finally been picked up by a team this offseason, signing a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets for the veteran's minimum, a far cry from the deal he was demanding while he was still in Boston.
While playing for the Celtics, IT said that whichever team signed him would have to 'bring out the Brinks truck' to pay him what he wanted. At the time, it was arguable that he deserved a max contract after what he was doing for Boston. Thomas finished his 2016-17 campaign averaging over 28 points and almost 6 assists a game, leading the Celtics to the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
Thomas was one of the MVP candidates for the season, finishing top 5 in voting, became the shortest player in NBA history to score 50 points in a playoff game, as well as joined the company of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in leading the Celtics in scoring over the entire season in 32-straight games.
Thomas' Boston tenure will go down as easily the best years of his career, and after disappointing stints in Cleveland and Los Angeles, here's hoping he can regain some form in Denver.
