Cleveland fans weren’t really happy to hear Isaiah Thomas insulting them, and yes, he did a huge mistake here.
Cleveland natives are angry at Isaiah Thomas, and they have every right to do so. Thomas had one of the worst falls in his NBA career despite his solid start in Sacramento. He changed a few teams, and averaged 28.9 points for the Celtics in 2016-17. But, fans are now trying to forget Thomas’ short sting in Cleveland. He averaged 14.7 points in 15 games. His latest comments are even worse.
Will Isaiah ever come back to Cleveland after this? I don’t think so.
“Cleveland is a shi*hole. I see why Bron left. Again,” Thomas sad. Wrong move. Thomas’ stay in Ohio was pretty short, and everything points to the fact that he doesn’t really fancy their game. He was completely out of line, and this comment “buried” him. You just don’t spit the person that fed you.
The Instagram video was enough for fans to give up on their favorite All-Star. Maybe he will think again before making such comments. He can’t just say that about Cleveland.
He received awful backlash, and now tries to clarify his statement in another video. Thomas even apologized.
“I shouldn’t have said that. That was my fault. Cleveland was actually cool, it was all right. The situation just wasn’t the best. I apologize for saying it was a s—hole. It wasn’t a s—hole. The team was dope, the players was filthy. My guy Gio. Training staff was cold. Nah, Cleveland was cool. I shouldn’t have said that, that was my bad. I was just talking on IG Live, I didn’t think it was gonna get to where they’re posting it. It’s like damn, my bad,” he says in the video.
Well, will fans forgive him?
