During his tenure in Boston, Isaiah Thomas has enjoyed fantastic success as a member of the Celtics, and while the journeyman is entering into the final year of his contract, he made perfectly clear when he spoke on Tuesday that Boston is where he wants to stay for the long term.
The Celtics guard missed the last three games of the Eastern Conference finals with a hip injury, but from all accounts, is supposed to be close to full strength by the time he starts training camp.
Thomas told the Boston Herald: “The hip is great, “It’s going well. Adding: Rehabbing it, but it’s going well. It’s a real slow rehab process, but it’s getting better and that’s what it’s all about.”
Thomas wishing to remain in Boston makes complete and utter sense. He has already said that he’s extremely excited about the Celtic’s new additions and has enjoyed the best years of his career by far playing with the Celtics.
So with two All-Star teams (2016, 2017) and All-NBA second team honors in 2017, he’d be crazy to go anywhere else, right?
