ISAIAH THOMAS (WAS)
PG • 5’9, 185 lbs; 9th year, Washington
NBA ROLE: HIGHLY-SKILLED SCORER/PLAYMAKER
What Isaiah Thomas lacks in height, he makes up in excellent creativity and toughness on the court; a practictioner and devout believer of Nate Robinson’s mantra, ‘Heart Over Height‘, the Tacoma native is a cunning playmaker – high-level of command operating pick & rolls, makes patient, reactive reads; great at drawing fouls and absorbing contact – IT also features a bit of finesse, has some of the best hezzies in the league; heats up in a hurry: Isaiah’s tough to stop downhill, can hit Js from anywhere off the dribble; still needs to work on defensive intensity (fighting over screens, picking up PGs before they cross the timeline) & shot selection but there’s no questioning IT’s pure takeover ability; great opportunity in WAS – return to form?
