If you were upset that the Celtics traded Isaiah Thomas, you are not alone. Of course we welcome Kyrie with open arms but losing Isaiah Thomas so abruptly is hard to process.
Not having Isaiah Thomas in Celtics green doesn't feel right, and that goes beyond basketball. He came here as an underdog, and left Boston a champion of the people. No he didn't win a title here, but he put this city and team on his back and brought them as far as he mentally and physically could. Losing his little sister was such a tragedy. The fact that he could even put his shoes on was a miracle by itself. Let alone playing the way he did in the weeks that followed. Seeing him cry on the bench next to Avery Bradley was terrible to see and I'll never forget it. He could have quit but he didn't. He knew Chyna would want to him to play and that's exactly what he did. Dropping 53 points on her birthday is a game that will go down in History. Watching his post game interview after that game really put things into perspective.
Isaiah Thomas, we will forever be grateful for what you did for us. You took a team that had no pulse and brought it life. You took a lost team and gave it direction. You will always be a Celtic in my eyes, no matter what jersey you have on.
