One of the biggest blockbuster moves in the 2017 NBA offseason was the Cavaliers-Celtics trade that sent isaiah thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a Brooklyn Nets first round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving.

Many believe, although Kyrie Irving is one of the best talents in the NBA and arguably the most skilful individual in the league, the Cavaliers still won the trade by acquiring the all-star point guard, a very solid two way player, a solid center with a bright future and a possible top 5 pick in the first round.

Isaiah Thomas was initially caught off guard by this trade as he held his values very close to the city of Boston and the Celtics team after going through a lot of tribulations with the squad.

But after processing it, he quickly became eager and ready to get the season underway with his new squad. Thomas feels he is on a team that can compete with anyone in the league, and although his hip injury will keep him out a couple more months, he vows to have a dominant season, proving to the Celtics his true value.

Isaiah guarantees Boston will regret trade

Isaiah Thomas is clearly very anxious to get the season started, and is ready to prove the Boston Celtics wrong. Since the trade he has expressed his opinions on the upcoming season, questioning his place on NBA rank lists and assuring he will score 30-plus points per game. He has recently come out with another strong statement regarding the trade and what the C’s will discover in the near future, saying:

“But every team in this situation comes out a year or two later and says, ‘We made a mistake.’ That’s what they’ll say, too.”


believes Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge will soon or later look back on this trade as a huge mistake. Thomas said, “I might not ever talk to Danny again… I’ll talk to everybody else. But what he did, knowing everything I went through, you don’t do that, bro.”

The 60th pick in the 2011 NBA draft, 5 foot 9 Isaiah Thomas has proven a lot of people wrong his whole life, and he is ready to prove some more people wrong once again.

I.T. compares the situation to NBA 2K

Isaiah is still confused with the trade; he truly believes himself, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first round pick is worth a lot more than NBA all-star Kyrie Irving. NBA 2K is a popular game played by NBA stars around the league, and although they aim to make the game as realistic as possible, there are still a lot of unrealistic stuff that happens in the game.

Thomas has compared those unrealistic features to a real-life trade that involved himself.

“It still doesn’t make any sense. I’m still asking, ‘What the hell happened?’ It’s a trade you make in NBA 2K. it’s not a trade you make in real life.
