Fizdale even compared Thomas to All-Star Draymond Green. “He’s a Swiss Army knife-type of player that can guard multiple positions and you can run offense through him,” the coach said on WFAN. “I think he can push the ball off the break a lot like Draymond Green plays. Obviously the thing I’m going to demand from Lance is to play defense like Draymond. And be a guy that’s pushing to be a First Team All-Defender.”
This was years ago already for Thomas, who graduated from bloody rituals to captaining a boat for offshore competitive fishing. It was never really a hobby for Thomas — more like a passion — but now it’s a competition, with tournaments scheduled through the spring and summer across the Gulf Coast. Thomas’ team, Slang Magic (more on the origins of the name later), is a newbie to the circuit, and its boat was recently built with the goal of earning big prize money and “bragging rights across the whole Gulf Coast, from Texas to Florida.
The 30-year-old old acknowledged many scary moments on the waters through the years, including once when the lightning was so strong and close “you could smell it.” Thomas was out with friends and family on this particular fishing trip, and he was responsible for the inexperienced onboard when a storm redirected into the Gulf. “When we got to less than two miles away from land, it went from 85 degrees to about 65 degrees. You could just feel like you just went into a freezer,” Thomas said. “And the rain felt like pellets being hit at you. Waves grew. We were getting tossed around like a rag doll.”
