Isaiah Thomas had a remarkable, inspirational run in Boston. He's a huge reason Cs have Horford and Hayward.

Can't imagine how difficult that call to Isaiah Thomas must have been for Danny Ainge. IT represented everything it meant to be a #Celtic.

.@Isaiah_Thomas Thank you. From the bottom of my heart thank you for reviving this franchise from the dead. I will miss you every day

The departure of Isaiah Thomas will hit a lot of people hard in Boston. He was at the center of this revival and definitely bled green.
