NBA: Celtics Fans Rally Behind Former Star Guard As Isaiah Thomas 'Practice Patience'

KEY POINTS

  • Isaiah Thomas was dubbed “King of the Fourth” by Boston fans during his tenure with the team
  • He’s averaging 12 points and close to four boards a game this season with the Wizards
  • Boston fans are asking him to return to Boston

The NBA Trade Deadline didn’t turn out too well for someone who was at the conversation for the most valuable player debate around three years ago. Now, it’s the fans’ turn to uplift someone who’s carried the load for their beloved team.

Isaiah Thomas was bound to play with one of the favorites this season after a three-team shuffle between the Washington Wizards, New York Knicks, and the Los Angeles Clippers but the latter opted to keep only Marcus Morris and decided to waive the 5-foot-9 guard. He’s played the most number of games since hurting his hip three years ago and has been providing solid numbers – 12.2 points, 3.7 assists, and 1.7 rebounds in 23 minutes in 40 games with Washington.
