Bleacher Report: Are you at all concerned about Turner’s departure, or do you see Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown being able to replace a lot of what he did? Isaiah Thomas: We’re going to miss Evan. He’s a guy who can not only make a play for himself, but a play for his teammates. When we played together, I played off the ball and let him make plays. We’re definitely going to miss that, but [his exit] is an opportunity someone else can take advantage of. I know Marcus Smart is going to be ready and is working hard. Another guy, my guy, Terry Rozier, is going to surprise people. I think he’s ready to make an impact. And then there’s Jaylen Brown. He’s going to be as ready as he has to be, and he’s going to help us wherever he can fit in. I’m excited at the opportunity to be competing with these guys. I’m excited to see who’s gotten better and what guys have worked on.

At just 5-foot-9, what Isaiah Thomas may lack in height, he makes up for in confidence. In fact, the Celtics’ point guard is so confident that he not only suggests the Celtics will be one of the best teams in the league next season but he is also quite certain that he’s among the best point guards in the NBA. “All I’m going to say is men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.” Thomas told Celtics.com’s Amanda Pflugrad when asked about his rank among other guards. “My numbers stack up against all those other guys, those other top superstar guys, I guess you’d say. At the end of the day, I’m just going to continue to work and continue to show that I’m just as good as any other point guard in the NBA.”
