Might the diminutive guard take center stage during Sunday night’s Game 7 at TD Garden? Well, probably not, but…
Back in February, before the Cavs traded Thomas to the Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA’s premier drama centered around whether Thomas would receive a video tribute when the Cavs visited Boston on Paul Pierce Night. Initial plans to run a tribute on the same night Pierce saw his number retired were scrapped after The Truth understandably voiced his displeasure.
That brings us to early Saturday morning, when Pierce responded to a fan who asked if he’d be cool with the Celtics honoring Thomas during Game 7.
Get your popcorn ready!
The Celtics, of course, won’t run a tribute video for Thomas with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line. Heck, they might never do it, as that ship probably sailed months ago.
Still, what a fitting end that would be to one of the dumbest dramas in NBA history.
