Must C’s: Boston shows Isaiah Thomas love in return

Welcome home, IT.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It’ll always be special when Isaiah Thomas comes back to Boston:

Before the game, Wizards head coach Scotty Brooks credited Thomas for the Celtics’ resurgence over the last three years:

“I.T. started this run where they’ve had basically five years of being one of the best teams in the league,” Brooks told reporters Wednesday night before Thomasreturn to TD Garden to face the Celtics. “Unfortunately they haven’t taken that next step, but this is another year that they’re going to be one of the best teams and have a chance to win it all.

” ... But I.T., I think he started it. When they made that trade [with] Phoenix, this team was changed, and this franchise changed because of that.”

Thanks for everything, IT.
