Isiah Thomas has been in his feelings ever since he left the Cleveland Cavaliers. Thomas took to IG live to rip into the city of Cleveland, Ohio. Thomas, who has bounced around the NBA throughout his career, was discussing the various cities where he has played and sharing an opinion on each. When he got to his brief stint with the Cavaliers, Thomas made those vulgar comments before adding “I can see why LeBron left — again.”
IT speaks his mind: “Cleveland was a sh*thole. I see why Bron left. Again.”

After calling Cleveland a “sh*thole, Thomas offered an apology shortly afterward.
I apologize for my choice of words about Cleveland. I was on my live playing around. They don’t show you everything for a reason smh. Right after that I clarified what I said…. All love to everybody who had love for me in Cleveland.

Thomas was part of the blockbuster deal involving Kyrie Irving last off-season, coming over from the Boston Celtics. But after an impressive debut with the Cavaliers on Jan. 2 — following months of rehab from a significant hip injury — Thomas made little positive impact before getting dealt to Los Angeles during a roster overhaul at the trade deadline.
Thomas signed with the Denver Nuggets this summer. The deal was worth only 2 million dollars. Just two seasons ago, Thomas was projected to be a max salary player.
