The former Boston Celtics point guard didn't come close to reproducing his scoring form from last season with his new team, and contributed to Cleveland's bad defensive efficiency. "You don't hang [banners for] conference titles". "I hope the National Basketball Association figures something out with that, because it was wrong for me to be ejected".
Isaiah Thomas and Rajon Rondo met Wednesday night for the first time after the emotional (and totally stupid) Boston Celtics video tribute drama. When told that Thomas led the Celtics to the Eastern Conference finals last season, Rondo said, "Oh, that's what we celebrate around here?"
During a segment on FS1's Undisputed series Tuesday (Feb. 13), Broussard spoke the trade that sent Thomas to the Lakers, just as he was working himself back into playing shape after being on the shelf for much of the season. New Orleans moved to 31-26 on the season, and they're now holding down one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.
While both Rondo and Thomas are passionate players, it's clear their encounter Wednesday was personal. I know he played on Paul Pierce's team.
It seems likely that James and Thomas will never play together for the rest of their careers, but that doesn't mean we won't get to seem them take the same court.
"I don't know what was going on with him", IT said.
It started when Thomas, who was due a brief honor from the Celtics after being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, asked to have his Boston moment moved to the same night of Pierce's jersey retirement. "What do we hang here?" "It was obvious it continued to be brought up with what happened tonight".
Thomas wasn't the only member of the Lakers to get ejected as coach Luke Walton was tossed with 1:38 left in the second quarter.
Rondo was somehow assessed a flagrant-one, while both players received technical fouls, according to the box score.
