Isaiah Thomas Seems to Have Some Regret About His 2017 Playoff Run

Fresh off signing a one-year, $2 million deal with the Denver Nuggets, Isaiah Thomas sat down with ESPN to talk about the current status of his career ahead of the next season. Rising until a hip injury pulled him out of the season following the 2017 NBA playoffs, Thomas only now admits that playing the playoffs with his injury was a mistake.

“If I didn’t play in the playoffs, I’d be OK,” Thomas admitted. “I’d be getting paid. I’d be who I am—who I was. But you couldn’t tell me in that moment in time—with everything I was going through—that, OK, I should just sit out. I don’t think Boston went about it the right way as well.” Around the time, Thomas was mourning the loss of his sister, Chyna Thomas, who died in a car crash last April.

  1. I've read that he has a genetic issue that will likely cause future tears. He apparently chose not to have that addressed in order to get a faster recovery. He's gambling.

  2. 10 million dollar a year player is all he ever was at his best because of his lack of height and defense. he'll impress Denver this year and get a better contract next year as a backup PG.

  3. I don't know Isaiah. he's a 5-foot 9-inch point guard and you can't average 25 and 30 points a game as you go along on your career you just can't so I don't think he'll ever recover from his Fall From Grace
