The Cleveland Cavaliers have gotten off to a slow start this season, going 4-6 in their first 10 games. Due to this, a lot of criticism has been thrown their way and a lot of people are wondering why the talented Cavaliers team hasn’t been able to hit their stride yet. A heroic 57-point performance from the game’s best player LeBron James was what was needed to be done for the Cavs to get a win after a four-game losing streak. But just two days after the Cavaliers victory over the Washington Wizards, their bad-play returned with a loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.

Injuries to key players including Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson have slowed the Cavaliers down, along with their bad chemistry leading to lapses on the offensive and more prominently the defensive end of the court. The start of the 2017-18 season has not been ideal for the Cavs, but their star Point Guard still has confidence in himself and their team.

Isaiah tweets his confidence

isaiah thomas was recently traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2017 NBA offseason when Kyrie Irving demanded a trade from the defending Eastern Conference champions. This was a trade that surprised a lot of people, including the 5-foot-9 point guard, but it has not destroyed his confidence what so ever.

After averaging a third-ranked in the league 28.9 PPG last season with the number one seeded Boston Celtics, Isaiah Thomas has a lot of confidence when it comes to his skill set and what he brings to the table. He recently expressed this so-called arrogance on Twitter.

Isaiah is obviously feeling underappreciated by fans and the media, and he believes people have already forgotten his name and the ability he brings to the table.

After suffering a hip injury in the playoffs, Thomas is scheduled to miss time until roughly December or January of 2018, and he is more hyped than ever to get back to the court. He understands the process is slow but has expressed his eagerness to return to action on social media in the past few months. We don’t know if he will be able to get back to his full form straight away, but he certainly should be ready for the NBA playoffs and to perform on a team he believes will win the 2018 NBA Championship.

Isaiah needs a big year

The 2017-18 season being all-star point guard Isaiah Thomas’ last season of his contract, he will be looking to perform at a high level to heighten his value in the market when the 2017-18 season ends. With the Celtics last season, he proved he will be worth a lot of money to a team in 2018, but this season is even more important as he needs to prove he is back to all-star form after his hip injury. Whether the Cavaliers will re-sign him or another team will have a bigger offer is unknown yet, but Isaiah will be looking to prove himself next year.
