2. Isaiah Thomas
Kyrie Irving was about to hold out of playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers simply because he could not stand the combination of Dan Gilbert and LeBron James. Now Isaiah Thomas is thrown onto this team to be carried on LeBron’s chest in a baby bjorn.
Plus, Thomas has made it extremely clear that he wants the bag and nothing else matters. Max contract or bust and playing on the Cavs might affect his chances of getting that deal. The fact that this trade was delayed because of his hip is not great for that contract either. The quest for the bag will be an arduous journey.
