Whichever city, Sacramento or Seattle, gets the Kings NBA franchise next year, the home fans will have a pleasure of watching Isaiah Thomas, who is set to have his best season.
If that’s the case, it will be thrilling to watch Thomas in this third season. His first two seasons have been entertaining.
All the drama on where the Sacramento Kings will be next year took away a lot of the luster provided by Thomas and his teammates. Thomas ended the season with the Kings in impressive style even though they lost each game. In the finale against the Los Angeles Clippers, which could have been the last game in Sacramento, he played 43 minutes and was 5-of-17 from the floor but still had 15 points and dished out 10 assists. It’s obvious that he was on his game late in the season
He struggled against the Houston Rockets a day prior to the Thunder game with 28 minutes of action and was 2-of-9 from the floor, 5-of-5 from the line and had 10 points plus a whopping nine assists.
Thomas had a good sophomore season with 13.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.
In his rookie season with the Kings, Thomas played 65 games with an average of 25.5 minutes per outing. He has shown in his first three seasons that he’s not afraid to go to the basketball and mix it up with some of the toughest players in the league. Thomas is starting to prove he’s among the toughest players in the league in his own right.
Expect those numbers to go up in future years.
