The Celtics are rebuilding and Isaiah Thomas is a good piece to build around. The PG seems like he could be on the brink of stardom and he has the opportunity to run the show in Boston.
He’s also pretty confident in his abilities too. While team goal’s are atop his list, he also would like to become and all-star as well.
“First off, team goals, we just want to build from what we did last year,” said Thomas. “We made the playoffs, but we definitely weren’t satisfied. We think we have a better team than we had last year and we have a full season together — it’s only going to make us better. My goal for the team is to make the playoffs and just build from there. Hopefully win some games and win a series and go from there. Just getting there and having that experience was amazing last year.
“Then, individual goals, I don’t have too many. When you achieve your team goals, then your individual success comes. But I definitely feel like I can be an All-Star. I’m not just saying that. I honestly feel that way. With hard work and dedication and just taking my craft serious. And, with the opportunity given with the Boston Celtics, I feel like I can reach that goal. That’s a goal of mine. First and foremost it comes with team goals. And just getting [to the playoffs] and being the best team we can possibly be.”
