For Thomas’ part, he swears he isn’t pondering the possibilities just yet. “Honestly, I haven’t looked that far, but I know when that time comes it’s definitely going to be a decision that I make that’s best for me and my family,” Thomas told USA TODAY Sports on a recent visit to the NBA A to Z podcast (before the trade deadline). “I love Boston. They changed my career. They’ve given me an opportunity of a lifetime, and I can’t thank them enough. But at the end of the day, as a businessman and as a professional basketball player, I’ve got to keep my options open. “I would love to be in Boston. I would love to bring a championship to Boston, and hopefully one day be a Boston Celtics legend like Danny Ainge said…You know this game is business, and you never know what’s going to happen. So I’ve definitely got to keep my options open.”
Storyline: Isaiah Thomas Free Agency
“The Lakers (have) always been a team I wanted to go to, I mean desperately – before I was on the Celtics,” Thomas said in the A to Z interview. “My Dad, being a Laker fan (growing up in Tacoma, Wash.), I was brainwashed as a kid of being a Laker fan, so that’s all I looked up to. I definitely (wanted to go there), especially in the draft (when) they had four second-round picks. “And when I did work out for the Lakers, they were interested in me and they thought they would pick me – which, they didn’t. And also, when I was a free agent, they were showing interest but that was the year they were waiting on, like, Carmelo (Anthony) and those types of guys to decide if they would come to LA, so I wasn’t like the first option. And then they ended up getting Jeremy Lin, so…”
Thomas and Crowder received technical fouls for their reactions. Carroll landed a technical and a flagrant-1. “It was intentional,” Thomas said after scoring 20 points in a 107-97 loss. “Did you see it? Yeah, that’s not a basketball play by any means. Guys who aren’t factors in games do that. It is what it is. You can’t do nothing in this league anymore. It’s not like back in the day where you can put your hands up and fight a guy. You can’t do that. But that was not a basketball play whatsoever and that’s not cool that he did that. So that’s what happened after.”
