Monday was not just another day of social distancing. March 30 also marked the anniversary of an iconic moment for Isaiah Thomas — one that dates back to his his time with the Boston Celtics.
Thomas put together two NBA All-Star seasons after he was sent to the C’s late in the 2014-15 season. His time in Boston was cut short when the Celtics brought in Kyrie Irving — a move that drastically changed the team dynamic.
Thomas, on the other hand, has been vocal about how he’ll always love Boston after playing on four teams since the C’s traded him away prior to the 2017-18 season. And the memories he created with Celtics teammates are some he’ll never forget.
Like that time he pranked Jaylen Brown.
Thomas took to Instagram on Monday to recall the iconic moment when he filled Jaylen Brown’s car with popcorn. And when we say it was filled, we mean it.

Brown didn’t seem to share the same enthusiasm when it came to celebrating the prank’s anniversary. But there’s no doubt the occasion gave Celtics fans a reason to smile, especially with the league suspended due to the coronavirus.
