Isaiah Thomas' letter to Boston will give you all the feels

Posted September 08, 2017

While introducing their acquisitions from the summer's blockbuster trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers were reluctant to discuss Isaiah Thomas' health during a news conference Thursday.

During the presser, Cavs general manager Koby Altman said that Thomas' road to recovery will be "non surgical".

The Cavaliers will also get the Miami Heat's 2020 second-round pick, but the Brooklyn Net's unprotected 2018 first-round pick is, without a doubt, the most attractive trade asset they got in return for Irving. "We're not going to rush this thing".

"It definitely caught me off guard, but it also woke me up", Thomas said about the deal, which was delayed because the Cavs had concerns about the severity of his injury.

Koby Altman confirmed that the treatment plan of Thomas does not include surgery.

Truth is, Thomas' hip has been a major talking point around the league for months, starting the moment the 5-foot-8 guard was forced to bow out of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland when the pain became intolerable and he could no longer perform at his elite level.

But right now, they will have to consider pulling the trigger on a deal if an All-Star-caliber player is available on the trade market.

Thomas understood that Ainge made a business decision, but lamented the fact that "loyalty ain't nothing to count on" when it comes to the National Basketball Association, hoping that players like Kevin Durant won't be chastised in the future after seeing how Thomas was dealt after his heroic 2017 playoff performance, fighting through injury and the death of his sister, Chyna. He last played competitive basketball almost four months ago, in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, before having to sit out the rest of the series because of his hip.

"When it comes to basketball, there's no pressure", Thomas said.

To strengthen their chance of dethroning the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland should continue upgrading their roster by adding players who can mesh well with "The King".

"We built that", he said.

"There was a lot going on that day, obviously", Crowder told reporters in Cleveland.

Thomas was expected to rake in the big bucks with the Celtics before the trade materialized. "And I hope people can understand that when I say it hurt, it isn't directed at anyone".

"I'm blessed to be able to be traded to a situation where - realistically - we can win a championship next year".
