Isiah Thomas, the point guard who joined the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA off-season, not the Isiah Thomas who was one of the best-ever and played for the Detroit Pistons from 1981 – 1994 (two-time NBA champs in 1989 and 1990), is getting close to making his debut with LeBron and the boys after an injury kept him out since the beginning of season following his trade from the Boston Celtics to Cleveland.
Thomas was out due to a torn labrum in his right hip. Ouch. Just typing that makes our fingers hurt.
The Cavaliers started the 2017 – 2018 NBA season slowly, but have reeled off 12 straight lest anyone get the impression that they have lost a step.
The Cavaliers expect Thomas to be ready before the end of 2017 and possibly sooner. He could play in one of the Cavalier’s four home games, although he will not see extensive court time and his actual return is dependent on seeing how well he can tolerate contact.
Cleveland is also anticipating the return of Tristan Thompson.
According to LeBron, they will be welcomed, but there was not panic over their absence.
We ourselves rely on an Ouija board to see into the future, but LeBron has a better system, he was quoted in the Associated Press.
“I play a lot of NBA 2K,” James said, referring to the video game. “It’s the most realistic basketball game you could ever play. I mix and match a lot of line-up changes and things of that nature to see how we can be really good. I’ve done that.”
The future looks bright, according to James, once Thomas makes his return. “Looks pretty good,” James said. “Looks pretty good.”
Maybe we should abandon the Ouija board and the Magic 8 Ball and get an X-box or a Play Station. Our predictions could not get any worse; they might even improve.
