Sure, Isaiah Thomas isn’t the first fun-sized guard to come through the Kings organization – from Spud Webb to Ronnie Price, the Kings have almost always had a pint-sized fan favorite to call their own, but Isaiah Thomas is taking it to another level.
The final pick in the 2011 NBA Draft not only has impressed with his on-court game, but the heart and passion are unrivaled. The fire he brings to the floor every time he steps on it – it’s adored by the black and purple loyalists and last nights efforts were no different when Thomas, all by himself, stopped a 3 on 1 Blazers fast break with a nasty stuff on Wesley Matthews.
Look at the elevation (thanks to @LA03)
Blake Griffin, Blake Schmiffin. Give me some 5’9 dude (and that’s being generous), with his hand at the rim, stuffing a 6-5 two-guard on a fast break.
