Isaiah Thomas Could Have Suffered Torn Labrum Last December

07 September 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers officially introduced Isaiah Thomas, as well as Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic, at a press conference today after finally completing the trade with the Boston Celtics.

LeBron James reportedly cooled on Thomas when he learned his new point guard may not be able to take the court until after the All-Star Break. So Cleveland, if you know any skate parks in the Cleveland area, let Thomas know!

Thomas failed his initial physical in Cleveland, which almost derailed the blockbuster trade.The deal was salvaged when the Celtics tossed in a 2018 second-round draft pick to the original package that included the three aforementioned players and a 2018 first-rounder. The snippet shows Thomas making a phone call to share the news shortly after Celtics president Danny Ainge informed him he would be traded.

Cavs GM Koby Altman told reporters he did not want the introductory press conference to turn into "the Isaiah Thomas hip press conference", but he did say Isaiah won't be undergoing surgery and that the goal is to have him back "at some point this year".

In the new court design, designed by the Cavaliers graphics team and constructed by Cincinnati Floor Company, the Cavaliers opted to spotlight "The Shield", which the team says represents the Cavs' commitment to "Defend The Land" and is a nod to the resilience of the passionate Cleveland fan base.

Thomas also writes about how he wanted to go down in history as a Boston sports legend alongside the likes of Tom Brady and David Ortiz. Best of luck. You're gonna do great.

I think I realized that, like, Yo - that's Tom F-- Brady. I can't wait to see the future match-ups between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After moving from the Celtics to their top rival in the East, Thomas said his job is now to destroy the team he helped build. "I'm just saying, man, I'm only human".

Thomas, who was the last pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, has been doubted every step along the way of his career. "Unless they did something very special". 'Cause what they're showing me right now, is all I needed tonight: to know I'm not alone. "And maybe, my time here. even if, in the end, I guess it wasn't quite what I'd dreamed it would be - maybe it still meant something to some people".
