Isaiah Thomas, who is all of 5 ft 9 in, is a big time NBA player who loves to prove the critics he can do it all, and in the face of adversity. Being the final pick in the 2011 draft, he showed the world what it means to knock down the walls in front of you when opposition is met, even with the tiniest of opportunity. Kind of ironic, because his massive inner confidence is exactly what was required.
On April 15, 2017 Thomas’ sister died in a tragic car crash, which was one of the most devastating points in his life. Thomas played in the first two games of the Celtics’ first-round playoff series and then flew to Washington to be with his family. Thomas was bashed by some, but he had his own extremely valid reasons for playing. His inspirational hot streak through the emotional times has made everyone feel the presence of what his family means to him. Isaiah
