Isaiah Thomas Willing To Defer Extension To Help Boston In Free Agency

Thomas shocked by Stevens snub

Nelson thought the Warriors needed Greg Oden.

However, Los Angeles does hold the advantage to offer Paul a super-max contract of five years and over $210 million due to the designated player exception, while other teams can only make a four-year maximum contract offer. At least the Raptors, who were without franchise point guard Kyle Lowry for all but 69 minutes against Cleveland, kept the average margin of defeat to a more respectable 13 points a night.

With that being said, there are 14 playoff teams that will be sitting at home frustrated watching these same two go at it once again.

But he favored Oden, a 7-footer who in his lone season at Ohio State was drawing comparisons to Hall of Famer Bill Russell, Nelson's teammate in Boston. "As of tonight, I'll get started". "We don't go into any series saying we're only going to play four games, we can't approach a series like that, like, 'Yeah, we're going to play four.' You approach it with a mindset of, 'Of course we'd love to sweep them but you have to take that game by game'".

"Eastern Conference finals, that's the biggest stage I've ever been on", Thomas said at the team's practice facility in Waltham, Massachusetts.

"He's been so special for us", said Love.

"It made me look back to see how fast everything can be taken away from me", he said of a postseason experience that began with the death of his younger sister, Chyna, in an April 15 auto accident. We had a pretty solid showing in that respect.

"I think first of all I wear the number (23) because of Mike", he told reporters after finishing the game with 35 points to take his total to 5,995 points. "It was an incredible time to see two great players who have Hall of Fame potential from the beginning".

The Warriors have home-court advantage, and they were almost unbeatable at Oracle Arena in the regular season.


Later that postseason, the Portland Trail Blazers won the draft lottery and the Seattle SuperSonics were second. "Danny is a great president of basketball operations". Before getting too critical, you do have to consider the awful luck of Griffin, who was taken out of the playoffs due to a toe injury three games into the series with Utah.

“I only play blackjack in Vegas anyway, so it doesnt matter, ” he said. "He should definitely be in the running, and if you ask anybody in this league, he should definitely probably be the Coach of the Year".

"Boston's changed my career, changed my life", he said.

Overall, the NBA Finals is a breeding ground for low-scoring basketball. "I'm very happy and I'm going to enjoy it until we play Golden State".

Thomas said he never doubted that coach Brad Stevens and general manager Danny Ainge were more concerned about his future than getting him back into the game. "As of tonight, I'll get started". That's where my boys went to school. "That is - I was thinking about that the other day". I was like, if I'm not scoring the ball, how can I still make an impact on the game? "I can't really worry about what those guys are going to do, I can just worry about what I can do and get better to help this team if I'm here".

Instead, Oden himself acknowledged he goes down as a bust, which nobody could have predicted when coaches were tantalized by him.

Boston Celtics All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas said surgery is not now the best option for his injured right hip although it could eventually prove necessary.

James said at a summer basketball camp a year ago that he found motivation in "this ghost I'm chasing, the ghost played in Chicago". This has brought up discussions of competitive balance - we have seen the same Finals three years in a row, and we will nearly certainly head into next season expecting a fourth.
