Boston Celtics Star Guard Isaiah Thomas Selected To All NBA Second Team, Further Validating His Claim Of Being One Of The Best Guards In The Entire NBA

The Boston Celtics got obliterated on Wednesday night in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland. But on Thursday a bit of good news came for the Celtics as the NBA released their All-NBA teams and C’s guard Isaiah Thomas was named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Per Cs PR, Isaiah is the first Celtic to be named first- or second-team All-NBA since Paul Pierce in 2009.

“It’s a blessing,” Isaiah Thomas says of being named to All-NBA Second Team. “It’s not just something for me. It’s something for this team.”

Based on this, the NBA voters have essentially named Thomas the seventh  best player in the entire NBA, and the fourth best guard. IT has been a big part of Boston’s success this season, Celtics coach Brad Stevens praised IT’s All-NBA Second Team nod and thinks IT deserved to get this type of recognition.

“It’s a tremendous accomplishment,” Brad Stevens says of Isaiah Thomas’ All-NBA Second Team nod. “And it’s well-deserved.”

Thomas averaged 28.9 points per game this past season, he has overcome a lot in his career and he has faced even more off the court within the last month. Being named to this list drives up the potential price tag for Thomas even more as he has one more year left on his contract with the Celtics.

Coming up a lot of talk will come out for and against resigning Thomas, and if that wasn’t enough the timing of a potential signing or non-signing will also be a big topic of discussion. But for now, let us celebrate a player who has beat the odds and has developed into what many around the NBA think to be an elite talent.

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has had quite the first season for the C’s and it looks like everyone around the NBA is taking notice.

On Thursday the NBA announced that Irving would be a starting guard on the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

Irving is averaging 24.1 points and five assists per game for the C’s this season and is happy to be representing the Celtics out in Los Angeles.

“I am truly appreciative of the fans of the NBA and the Boston Celtics for voting me in to this year’s All-Star Game as a starter,” said Irving. “I am super proud that I can represent the Celtics in LA and looking forward to putting on a show.”

Irving with joins ex-teammate LeBron James, 76er Joel Embiid, Toronto’s Demar DeRozan, and the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo as starters.

This is the fifth All-Star selection of Irving’s NBA career.

The reserves have yet to be named by the NBA with Al Horford and Jayson Tatum being other Boston players who could be in the running to make the Eastern Conference squad.

Patriots

It feels like New England Sports is currently being buried – in snow, controversies and soul-decimating losses.

The recent Patriots victory over the Steelers has been tarnished by subsequent internal-fighting. And over the past couple of weeks, the Boston Celtics have been defeated by some of the most middling of NBA teams.

The only auspicious emblem to be found would be the Bruins, who have won 3 games in a row. If the season ended today, the B’s would make the playoffs! But don’t worry, they’ll find a way to self-destruct before the season actually ends.

So when you’re neck-deep in it, like we presently find ourselves, what do you do? You shovel yourself out. Let this article be your utensil of liberation! It’s time for another installment of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Neck Deep Edition.

The Celtics Have a Bench Problem

Jayson Tatum

With the Celtics suffering a nonplussing loss at the hands of the Utah Jazz, it’s become apparent: This bench is gonna need some help. And they’re going to have to find this help from within themselves.

Ever since he was acquired from the Pistons, Marcus Morris was expected to be the most talented asset on the Celtics bench. Morris has the skills to be a secondary powerhouse in the NBA. Just last season, for Detroit, Morris averaged 14.0 PPG and just about 5 RPG.

But unfortunately his young tenure in Boston has deteriorated into “what ifs”.

Marcus has been afflicted with a lancinating and unrelenting pain in his left knee. Not only did he miss the start of the season, but he’s been sidelined yet again by this tenacious problem.

Without Morris on the court, Boston’s bench lacks that veteran’s heart and wisdom that he provides. They also are mathematically short in the scoring department, without the versatile big man.

As we saw Friday night at the Garden, somebody is going to need to step up – and fast.
