Isiah Thomas Rumors

He currently ranks 10th with 8,879 assists, but he will soon surpass Gary Payton (8,966), Isiah Thomas (9,061) and perhaps even Chris Paul (9,290) this season. Assuming he maintains his season average of 11 per game, James should top Payton and Thomas at some point in the middle of this season. Paul, who is currently with the Oklahoma City Thunder in his 15th season, has stayed healthy and productive thus far. Considering Paul’s extensive injury history though, James could make up enough ground to climb ahead of his close friend either late this season or early next season. James should also eclipse Oscar Robertson (9,887 assists) next season and Magic Johnson (10,141), Mark Jackson (10,334) and Steve Nash (10,335) in two years. It seems like a stretch James could surpass Jason Kidd (12,091) and John Stockton (15,806). “I’ve been fortunate to be able to play with great teammates and great coaches in three great organizations so far in my career,” James said. “I just hope I make anyone who has followed my career proud.”
Justin Kubatko: The @Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James had 29 points and 11 assists in last night’s win. James has the most games with at least 25 points and 10 assists since the ABA-NBA merger: 154 – James. 137 – Magic Johnson. 128 – Russell Westbrook. 119 – James Harden. 109 – Isiah Thomas.
The Cowboys have a problem with their 2019 second-round pick Trysten Hill. He’s not reliable enough to play on a full-time basis and despite the organization saying he’s doing the necessary things to compete, it would appear he’s not doing that. Last Thursday at The Star, Hill fell asleep during a speech given by Basketball Hall of Fame player Isiah Thomas, according to multiple sources. It was so bad that Thomas called Hill out to wake up.
Rose has spent time with Thomas, a Pistons Hall of Famer and fellow Chicago native, since signing with the team and spoke of him almost reverentially, quickly noting Thomas was the only player to beat Michael Jordan in his prime. “And it was a point guard,” Rose said. “Being in that spot, understanding the spot he was in, the load he took on every night, I think being here I appreciate him even more. Even having conversations with him and understanding who he is as a person and as a player and the principles that he stood on. I realize it and understand it’s just Chicago. You know what I mean? The way that he was brought up, his mentality, just everything. It just glows off his aura. He’s a winner. And after talking to him, I see why.”
