Cavs' Thomas asks Celtics to nix video tribute

Cavs' Thomas asks Celtics to nix video tribute

Isaiah Thomas has declined the Celtics' offer to honour him with a video tribute on February 11 because it is the same day Boston are to retire Paul Pierce's number 34.

Thomas played just two-plus seasons for Boston after he was traded during the 2014-15 season, but his 28.9 points per game average is the second-highest average in Celtics history behind Larry Bird's 1987-88 campaign (29.9).

Pierce was not game to share his spotlight moment with a lesser former Celtic and even had the temerity to actually ask for the Kobe Bryant treatment in response to the planned Thomas tribute. But since it appears this has caused some controversy w/ Paul Pierce's night I'd ask the Celtics instead to focus all of their attention on #34's career.

Isaiah Thomas has asked the Celtics to focus the night of Paul Pierce's jersey retirement exclusively on Pierce.

Everything seemed to be fine, but then Pierce came out and said Thomas should wait until next season. He also said when he and Thomas' agent, Aaron Goodwin, first discussed an alternate date to a Thomas tribute, which was originally scheduled for January 3, neither of them realized the next time the Cavaliers came to town would be the night that Pierce was being honored. "So big salute to my boy Paul Pierce".

Thomas was traded to Boston by the Phoenix Suns in the middle of the 2015-16, and immediately made an impact on the team. Nobody put in more work than Pierce. Why would they honor him on that same day? Let my man get his jersey retired, man, let him embrace that, man. Pierce said he'd like to have the same thing for him. He put a lot of blood, sweat and tears in this organization, and capitalized and had good results. (Pierce) struggled with the team. Talk about Paul Pierce, man, don't mention his name, the guy's name that don't stand in the same frame. Turned around and won a championship (the next season). I remember losing 19 straight with that man.
