Isaiah Thomas: 'Man, am I going to miss being a Celtic'

An orthopedic hip surgeon offers a few scenarios for Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas penned an entry in The Players' Tribune on Wednesday, reflecting on the blockbuster trade that sent him to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Kyrie Irving. "We're not going to comment on the injury and we're not going to comment on a timetable".

"We're not going to rush it at all", said Altman, who quickly grew exhausted of questions about Thomas' health. The Cavs have said they're looking to treat Thomas without surgery, which is the same plan the Celtics had.

Isaiah Thomas will miss the early part of the season, but once he gets back on the floor, the offensive dynamo is going to be a headache for defenses.

The Boston Celtics trade for Kyrie Irving is without a doubt the biggest trade of the National Basketball Association offseason and while most of the attention has been on Irving, Thomas offered his perspective on the trade in an essay for The Player's Tribune titled, "This Is for Boston".

Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

Truth is, Thomas' hip has been a major talking point around the league for months, starting the moment the 5-foot-8 guard was forced to bow out of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland when the pain became intolerable and he could no longer perform at his elite level. "I wasn't wronged. It was Boston's right to trade me".

Thomas, who spent his first three National Basketball Association seasons playing for struggling teams in Sacramento, was effusive in his praise of James. But Rose has averaged just 48 games played per season since missing the 2012-13 campaign, and Calderon averaged 13.1 minutes per game in his age-35 season.

During his 2.5 years with the Celtics, Thomas says he "fell in love with Boston" and was disappointed because he wanted to go down in New England sports history for bringing championships to Boston. "The good thing about the whole ordeal was I was able to whisper it to my mom before she passed". Thomas also finished fifth in the Most Valuable Player (MVP) ballot, besides making the All-NBA Second Team ahead of a battery of All-Star point guards.

"There was a lot going on that day, obviously", Crowder told reporters in Cleveland.

In terms of adversity, it doesn't get much tougher than the past couple weeks Jae Crowder has worked through.

Thomas said both he and Crowder have already been in touch with Cavs star LeBron James since the deal. And I was only here for two and a half years.
