Cleveland guard Isaiah Thomas made his season debut last night by dropping 17 points against the Portland Trailblazers.
Tonight Cleveland faces Boston in a matchup Thomas will sit out. The team was expected to honor Thomas with a tribute video, one which he later asked the team not to do.
A team spokesperson has confirmed that the Celtics will honor Thomas’ request and not display the package tonight, but at a later date.
This offseason Isaiah Thomas was traded from the team he led to the playoffs last season to the Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving. The deal was a package deal that involved other players and future draft picks.
