Isaiah Thomas On Potential Celtics Return: 'You Never Know'

It's been almost two years since Isaiah Thomas was delivering one memorable postseason performance after another for the Boston Celtics, all with his hip fighting against him while he coped with the tragic loss of his sister.

It's tough to say that Boston would've won a championship with IT or that their championship aspirations are greatly diminished by his absence. However, the former All-Star guard returned to the TD Garden on Monday evening as a member of the Denver Nuggets and, after a long and winding road, Thomas (finally) received his tribute video from the Celtics. While rehabilitating from his hip injury over the summer, he was shipped to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a package for superstar point guard Kyrie Irving.

Video aside the point remains that both Thomas and the Celtics benefited from his run in Boston.

"You never know what could happen", Thomas said. I put my heart and soul out here on that floor, each and every night.

Regardless of his career trajectory, Thomas left his mark on the Celtics, and the city of Boston as a whole.

"That was good. That was special", said Thomas.

"This was some of the most fun times of my career", he said. "Not saying they don't now, but playing for (the C's) changed my whole career".

"This city and this organization treated my family with 100 percent respect". "It'll make the story that much better".

As a Celtic, Thomas averaged 24.7 points per game and was known for leaving everything out on the court. He started the second quarter and played a total of seven minutes for the game, finishing with no points and two assists. I'm a Denver Nugget now, but I'm a free agent at the end of the season, and you never know what can happen. "And, after nine games, to call him into a meeting and let him know I was going to shorten the rotation and he was going to be out of the rotation, it wasn't easy, and it wasn't something I enjoyed doing". But when asked directly whether the veteran would get minutes in his return to the home of his greatest National Basketball Association successes, Malone did everything he could to avoid committing to it. "We really had a blast kind of following him". "I know this game is, I believe, the first game he'll be back here with a chance to play since he left, and that's not lost on me".

"You never know", Thomas said. "Again, I look forward to the reception that he will receive here tonight". A fiery and competitive spirit, Thomas powered Boston to back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals during his two-and-a-half-season tenure, captivating fans with his fourth-quarter heroics on seemingly a nightly basis.

Wearing a pair of gold-and-green Nikes, Thomas revealed after the game his sneakers were made for the 2016-17 NBA Finals. "I'm just waiting on a real opportunity to just showcase what I can do".
