Isaiah Thomas: 'I got my powers back' with Lakers

Isaiah Thomas: 'I got my powers back' with Lakers

Isaiah Thomas' career with the Cleveland Cavaliers started off rocky, as he dealt with his recovery from offseason surgery.

During his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers, recently acquired guard Isaiah Thomas showed one way he can help the team while on offense.

Things that us fans don't think about during trades, such as having to buy a new house in a new city, leaving friends from your former team and having to make new friendships with your new teammates are all things that players who have been traded need to deal with.

Kyle Kuzma scored 12 points and pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds. You see the bench every time I was shooting, they were standing up cheering.

With the Big Three structure now officially abandoned in Cleveland, the new-look Cavaliers are prepared to "be the best role players we can possibly be" around four-time MVP LeBron James, said George Hill, who will start against the Celtics on Sunday.

It was the first Dallas-LA meeting since the Lakers ended the Mavericks' 14-game winning streak against the storied franchise.

"You can already see that he's a natural point guard where if he's coming off those type of plays", Walton said.


Scoring 22 points in his Lakers debut may be a sign that it might not all be bad in Los Angeles for him, but there should still be a concern as to what his attitude has the potential to do within the locker room - especially with LaVar Ball also in town.

Even though that is unlikely, it's still important for Thomas to play well and help the Lakers for the remainder of the season. There was no way the Lakers would stop his growth to accommodate Thomas.

In his first game with the Lakers, Thomas provided 22 points and six dimes in 31 minutes off the bench.

"That's the only thing that's gonna help me, because we don't practice", he told reporters after playing the Warriors on January 15. That was the first time I was able to have the ball in my hands and make a play and have guys, I don't know. He also explains that he is impressed with the progress that the young players the team features now is making.

After the game, he declared that he had his "powers back" and after taking part in his first practice session with the Purple and Gold, he chose to take a subtle dig at his old team.

The Cavaliers made headlines before the National Basketball Association trade deadline last week, after trading 6 players to different teams. "I predict he gets something in the neighborhood of 1 + 1 for $10 mil per year". That's just getting familiar with each other, practicing more.

Thomas added: "All these guys are talented ..." I tell him to keep pushing, and he is a big part of this team.
