Isaiah Thomas won’t play for the Cavaliers against the Celtics tomorrow, but he said he expected “all love” in his return to Boston.

Yet, Thomas didn’t want to be honored with a tribute video.

A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston:

Admittedly, that seemed a little odd. Especially considering Thomas’ bitterness toward the Celtics, it’s worth questioning why he didn’t want a video tomorrow.

But I certainly never assumed Thomas’ request was due to anything nefarious.

One fan did, though. And he caught plenty of heat from Thomas.

Thomas:

Fair enough.
