So it was galling to the Celtics guard to read — on Twitter, naturally — that he had been included in the NBA’s percolating rest controversy, lumped in with LeBron James, the Spurs and every Golden State star not named Kevin Durant. “Every time somebody sits out now, somebody thinks it’s for rest, and I’m not one of those guys,” the Celtics guard, clearly feeling caught in the crossfire, said last week. “Not to put anything against those guys, but I’m not one of those guys. I don’t ever want to rest.”
“I mean, I apologize to that kid, because I was once one of those kids,” he said. “I remember once when the Seattle Sonics played the Sacramento Kings, and I went to see Jason Williams. He couldn’t play because he had a migraine.” The experience stuck well enough that when Thomas was drafted by Sacramento, he just had to know. “Once I got drafted to the Kings, I asked the trainer — and he said yes, he really had migraines and he couldn’t play when he had it,” he said. “So I understand that. But what I was telling him was, just tell your kid why I’m not there. Don’t act like I’m not showing up because I’m resting. That’s what made me upset.”
