Is worth you to think about things. This is we've been watching NBA basketball game. We should be more to understand something about basketball thing.As Thomas started getting more time due to his strong defensive play, the coaches started to see what he provides to the offense. His speed and small stature allow him to weave through the defense while finding cutters and open players. His ability to hit the 3 ball at 38% on the season allowed the Kings to spread the court and run plays. And speaking of running plays, Isaiah ranked as the third best scoring point guard in the league in pick and roll situations. Scouts had their doubts about his ability to score on the pro level, however he proved that he is a legitimate threat off the dribble, and beyond the arc.

Believe this for us is a very important thing. Basketball. Have been growing. Progress.The Kings realized what the kid was doing, and constructed a plan to get him more floor time. 29 games into his rookie campaign, Isaiah Thomas got his first start. The Kings had moved Tyreke Evans, formerly a point guard, to the small forward position just to get Isaiah into the lineup, and it paid off. As a starter for 37 games Thomas averaged 14.8 points, 5.4 assists, while shooting 47.7% from the field and 40.6% from deep. Wildly impressive for the last pick in the draft. And in perhaps his most meaningful game of the year, when he went head to head with Kyrie Irving, the number 1 pick in the 2011 NBA draft, the man they call “I.T.” impressed. Posting an eye popping 28 points, 11 assists, and 8 rebounds, Isaiah completely outplayed the man who would later win rookie of the year.
