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.
