Former Celtic Isaiah Thomas Explained Why He Loved Playing In Boston


Mar 23, 2020

Isaiah Thomas has not forgotten about Boston.

The former Celtics point guard was among the fiercest competitors, especially during the memorable 2016-17 campaign, and never took a night off. Even while going through some trying times like the death of his younger sister, Chyna.

Thomas, who represented the Celtics for three seasons, noted the reasons behind his admiration for the city during a Q&A on Twitter.

Thomas was asked, simply, why he loves Boston so much. And it prompted a pretty awesome response.

“They gave me a opportunity and people actually believed in me for once,” Thomas tweeted.

Fighting through injury issues, the 31-year-old Thomas has played with four teams — the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets and Washington Wizards — since being traded by the C’s following the 2016-17 season.

Thomas now is a free agent. He and other players have been out of work as the NBA season is at standstill due to the coronavirus crisis.
