Isaiah Thomas drops truth bomb on rumored return to Celtics
Isaiah Thomas has had quite the career trajectory. Drafted 60th overall in 2011 then peaking as an MVP contender in 2017, the former Boston Celtics star has struggled to find a team over the past few years.
Thomas recently made news after scoring 81 points in Jamal Crawford’s “The CrawsOver” Pro-Am league, igniting discussions on whether he still has what it takes to contribute in the NBA. In an appearance on ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby show, Thomas addressed rumors of a possible comeback.
“There’s a little talk about that … I think the world wants that to happen because it only makes sense. If that opportunity presents itself, I know I can help that team, especially in the young guys over there in Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.”
For what it’s worth, the 5-foot-9 point guard also dropped 65 points a week before his 81-point game in another Pro-Am game. Before we know it, Pro-Am I.T. would be a thing if it isn’t already.
The odds aren’t looking good on a Celtics return, though. The team recently signed Dennis Schroder, who will have an $84 million chip on his shoulder, to shore up their point guard rotation that has Payton Pritchard and Kris Dunn, whom the Celtics loved prior to the 2016 NBA Draft.
Marcus Smart can play spot minutes at the point guard position as well.
