NBA insider Chris Broussard said that his sources were telling him that Boston players “weren’t that fond” of Isaiah Thomas, stating that he is a very “headstrong” guy with a “huge ego”.
It’s entirely possible that these leaks are coming from the Celtics’ organization because of their recent trade involving Thomas and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving. Many Boston fans are wondering why Thomas was traded and why so much was given up along with him, so the Celtics might be trying to sway fans opinions by leaking these reports. Thomas’ former teammate Kelly Olynyk denied these reports, and there never seemed to be any animosity between Thomas and any other players on the roster either.
