isaiah thomas will be playing for his fourth team in his sixth season in the league. He is the man responsible for turning the Boston Celtics organization back into a winning one. He did it in a short time after the departure of the big three of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce. Thomas was not expected to come and do what he did for the team after being traded by the Phoenix Suns, but he quickly became an unlikely hero. As a result, the Celtics have been able to hold onto assets that they are now using to their benefit. They've also enjoyed playing in the postseason and being one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference over the last few seasons.

Now, Thomas will be moving onto bigger and better things. He will be playing alongside the King in Cleveland and it will be by far the biggest opportunity of his career. The difference [VIDEO] between him and Kyrie Irving is he comes into the relationship with James already having the experience of successfully leading his own team. At the age of 29, he is more eager than Irving to benefit from the help of the best basketball player in the world. He will also be more humble than Kyrie, knowing that LeBron was the reason he and his former team could not reach the NBA Finals last season.

How will James and Thomas work together?

At this point in his career, LeBron needs a guy that has a big heart and can score the basketball at a high-level like Isaiah can.

Thomas will now be able to play off the ball much more than he could in Boston, which could possibly elevate his scoring. Last season, he averaged a career-high 28.9 points per game and finished fifth in the league's MVP voting behind his new partner in crime. With LeBron feeding him the ball in transition, it's safe to say the little guy could possibly put up Allen Iverson-like numbers this upcoming season.

At times during the James-Irving era, Kyrie seemed a little frustrated that the ball was not in his hands at key moments of the game. LeBron will not have to worry about that with Thomas who is a more natural scorer that gets a huge bulk of his points playing off the ball. The Celtics may have gotten the younger player but the Cavs may have gotten the better deal. With the addition of Thomas, Cleveland fans can expect their team to put up video game-like numbers this year. LeBron could easily average close to a triple-double this season.

Will the Cavs still be able to win the East?

The Boston Celtics have improved with the addition of Kyrie Irving.

He gives them the much-needed size at the point guard position and he complements the core of players Boston has better than Isaiah Thomas. So, what the East will come down to this season is who has the better depth. Both teams have great starting lineups but how their bench plays will determine who will be able to make it to the NBA Finals. As of now, the Cavs are the defending champs of the conference and hold the slight edge going into the season.
