Isaiah Thomas has been itching to become a full-time starter in this league for quite some time now. And for a while he actually was. But it seems as though the diminutive point guard has come to terms with his sixth man role on the Celtics.
"I'm all for the team and whatever it takes to win," Thomas said. "And that's an honest answer."
Thomas' willingness to buy in to what the Celtics want him to do will go a long way.
Does he still want to be a starter deep down? Probably. But it's good to know he isn't going to cause a problem when he doesn't get his way.
"As long as I'm getting the minutes I deserve, then I'm happy."
Music to the Celtics' ears.
