Isaiah Thomas excited to play alongside LeBron James

Thomas failed his initial physical in Cleveland, which almost derailed the blockbuster trade.The deal was salvaged when the Celtics tossed in a 2018 second-round draft pick to the original package that included the three aforementioned players and a 2018 first-rounder.

While the reactions of his children were said to be most important to him, the piece also gives us some details about how Thomas found out about the trade.

"From a basketball perspective, me on the Cavs is a match made in heaven", Thomas wrote.

For much of last season, Thomas was in the conversation as an MVP candidate.

In fact, the players that now constitute Boston's Big Three - Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward - are all here in part because of Thomas' play (Irving) and ability to convince them (Horford and Hayward) to come to Boston and be part of something special.

"But yeah, I'll just say it: That s- hurt. I don't agree with it, just personally, and I don't think the Boston Celtics got better by making this trade", he revealed.

A new chapter is about to begin in Isaiah Thomas' career and what a story it has been so far for him.

"I'm just getting treatment each and every day", Thomas said. This is going to be a great year to be a Cavs fan, a great year. "LeBron James! Dad - you get to play with LeBron James!".

Now that the deal is final, Thomas - who is rehabbing this week in Cleveland - shared an emotional glimpse of what he has gone through over the past couple of months. Obviously, one of the things he immediately addressed was playing alongside #LeBron James: "I get to come over and join the best team in the East, and try to win a championship alongside the best basketball player in the world".

Thomas, who works with Sam Goldfeder and Jeff Schwartz, will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the upcoming season. "I use it as motivation to keep fighting", he said about people doubting him, mostly because of his size.
