Isaiah Thomas claps back after refusing Celtics video tribute

Isaiah Thomas claps back after refusing Celtics video tribute

The post Isaiah Thomas has requested to not receive a video tribute from the Celtics appeared first on Cavs Nation.

Thomas has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game at Boston.

Thomas has not held back his displeasure with the Boston front office since the summer blockbuster trade that sent him to Cleveland (along with forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick) for guard Kyrie Irving.

The Cavaliers have the second-worst defense in the National Basketball Association this season and even a fully fit, up-to-speed Thomas isn't going to help that statistic.

Thomas is set to debut on Tuesday night in Cleveland against the Blazers, and will be on a strict minutes restriction. It's been a frustrating and tough process but at the same time you got to trust it.

Raiders fire coach Jack Del Rio after 6-10 season
For the first time this season it seemed Del Rio had lost the team as the effort just wasn't what it was in previous weeks. According to Jerry McDonald of the Mercury News , Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

The Cavs said on Monday that Thomas looked good through a scrimmage and will be playing in a limited capacity Tuesday when the team faces the Portland Trail Blazers. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight.

Thomas says he can score but it's not quite where he'd like his game to be. "But we're very excited to have him back".

"I know it will be all love", Thomas told ESPN of his Boston return.

Cleveland is adding his offensive explosiveness at an ideal time considering it has lost three games in a row and four of its last five following a stretch that saw it go 18-1.

In any case, there are all kinds of things to get excited about over this a year ago, that has brought them to this point right now. The guard is ready to finally make his long-awaited Cavaliers debut, and Cavs fans will be happy to hear that his return is just around the corner [VIDEO]. It would be highly unlikely he'd be peak Isaiah Thomas in his first game back from injury. Iman Shumpert, another player who was filling point guard minutes for Cleveland, has also been out.
