Isaiah Thomas is still loved in Boston.
He’s the undersized hero who played like an MVP, led the Celtics to the playoffs, all while playing through hip pain and the death of his sister. He embodied what Celtics fans want to see in their stars.
Monday night he returned — in a Denver Nuggets uniform — and IT became emotional during the tribute video and reception from the fans in Boston.
There was more love when Thomas checked into the game.
Next season hopefully Thomas is fully healthy for an entire season and lands in a place where he can truly showcase his talents.
