You’d be hard pressed to find anything not named bitcoin that has risen and fallen as dramatically as Isaiah Thomas’ career since 2011. First Mr. Irrelevant, then an unwanted scoring guard, a legitimate MVP candidate, Lonzo Ball’s backup, and now signing the veteran’s minimum in 2018 with the Denver Nuggets on a one-year deal. It’s certainly sad, and there’s no doubt Thomas deserved better, but also a brutal example of how the league works. No one is ever safe.
