​Isaiah Thomas has had a crazy two years. After carrying the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2017 after an MVP-caliber season in which he averaged over 28 points and 5.9 assists per game, he faded into irrelevancy after being shipped to Cleveland 15.2 points a game and posting a career-low .293 three-point shooting percentage. 


With his short stint with the Lakers likely over, Thomas has entertained the notion of rejoining Boston.

While he may have said it in jest, ​Thomas' comments on returning to the Celtics are completely outlandish. 


First, ​Boston simply has no need for their former two-time All-Star point guard. With Kyrie Irving looking toward playing a full season in 2018-19 and back-up PG Terry Rozier emerging as a star late in the season, Thomas would be nothing more than a rotational player.


​​But more importantly, it is hard to trust Isaiah Thomas' injury status. After missing the end of the Celtics' playoff run in 2017 with a devastating hip injury, the 5-9 phenom played in just 32 games this past season and was inactive for the Lakers' final 10 games of the season.

Should Thomas get another chance to be a star in the NBA? Absolutely, his work in Boston was too incredible to forget after just one lost season. But a reunion with the Celtics is completely out of the question.
