Isaiah Thomas is one of the most beloved players in the NBA. A 5-foot-9 guard who was the last pick in the 2011 draft, he built himself into a star with the Celtics through heart and fearlessness. A hip injury that derailed his career and cost him a big payday made him even more of a fan favorite, though as a sympathetic figure.
Now, Thomas is getting another chance – with the Pelicans.

But that’s far below NBA level of play. Thomas also declared himself recovered three years ago and clearly wasn’t. He’s now 32 – old for even a small guard without his injury history.
It’s easy to root for Thomas. It’s harder to predict he’ll help New Orleans.
