Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas, the pint-sized guard who was selected with the last pick in the 2011 NBA draft and has played for three teams in his first five seasons as a pro, was named an All-Star reserve Thursday night.
There were many people happy for him in the NBA and they made it known on Twitter and Instagram right away.
Of course, nobody was happier than Thomas himself. The 5-foot-9 guard, who joins Calvin Murphy as the smallest player ever selected to the All-Star Game, had nice words for teammates, coaches and even the media!
