Isaiah Thomas: I fell out of love with the game

He joined the Nuggets in July 2018 on a one-year, $2 million deal, and the Wizards a year later on a similar pact, delaying the inevitable with every short-term gain. โ€œI just didnโ€™t feel I had the time to sit,โ€ Thomas says. โ€œThat’s the scary part about being 5′ 9″ in the best league in the world. You have to be exceptional every time you play. I was just trying to find ways to stay healthy, stay on the court and show that I was capable of playing at a good enough level.โ€ At his lowest moments, Thomas says, โ€œI fell out of love with the game, because I was in pain every day.โ€
