Isaiah Thomas showed that maybe Cleveland was not a good fit for him after all. Thomas struggled as a Cavalier, but as a Laker its another story so far. Last night in his first game as a Laker off the bench he scored 22 points. At times Isaiah looked like the player people got used to in Boston. He was passing hitting threes and scoring when he was needed. While a Cavalier player, we did not see that at all.
It could be that there was a toxic climate in Cleveland when he was there. He did not do himself any favors either in Cleveland. Thomas was vocal about the problems in Cleveland and he spoke his mind. It was probably one of the reasons he was shipped out of Cleveland. Right now though he is on a team that fits what he can do.
This was only one game so we will have to wait and see what he does rest of the season. Hopefully, he can keep it going and earn a big contract down the line. He has been through a lot the last year and I'm rooting for him.
