Isaiah Thomas wants to stay with Lakers

He added: “I’m coming to an L.A. team that’s young, that already has a system. And I just want to help. Hopefully I’m here long term, you know, with me being a free agent this summer. But if I’m not, these last 25 games I’m going to play my heart out and show the Lakers why I should be here long term.”

Isaiah Thomas says the Cleveland Cavaliers were in “panic mode” when they traded him earlier this month. Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 8 after playing only 15 games for Cleveland. “I didn’t think they would pull the trigger that fast, 15 games,” Thomas told ESPN’s E:60 in an interview that will air March 11. “But again, it’s a business. And the Cavs were, I mean, they were in panic mode. We were losing — a lot. And I think they felt like they needed to make a move, and they, they basically cleared house.”

“It started this summer when I looked myself in the mirror, and I was kind of like, ‘I’ve got to start over,'” Burke said. ” … I bumped heads with my agent this summer because he didn’t understand [the decision to sign a G-League deal with the Knicks]. He pretty much called me and said, ‘OKC tomorrow for training camp. I’m going to call them back right now and say yeah, right?’ I said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Why?’ I said, ‘I want to go to New York. And I wanted to do that for the Lord. … I wanted to come to New York because I feel like this is a city where I can help a lot of people.”

Burke might be pressuring opposing defenses, but he isn’t putting too much pressure on himself these days. A renewed sense of religious faith has given him the kind of peace of mind that was missing earlier in his NBA career. “I’m living better,” Burke said. “Now, being married [to his longtime girlfriend, De’Monique, over the summer], not being out partying and being more focused and more locked in on my assignment each and every day — which, right now, is a 25-year-old man in basketball. My faith helps me perform at a better level. “I feel like I kind of lost that when I first got to the NBA.”

Players call out Zaza Pachulia

While battling for an rebound with Golden State’s Nick Young, Westbrook made contact with Young and fell to the floor. Pachulia, who was near the play but not particularly involved, crumpled to the floor after Westbrook was down and fell on the Thunder star’s legs. After the game, Westbrook challenged reporters who asked if he felt the fall was intentional. “Obviously it was intentional. Don’t ask me ‘was it intentional?’ Nobody touched him, he fell over my leg, tried to hurt me… but hey, that’s how it goes.”
