Yahoo: Isaiah Thomas and his Sacramento Kings are struggling through another season (
It's all very possible that Isaiah Thomas was not referring to his own sophomore slump when he tossed this tweet out early Friday morning: "Politics as USUAL" I'm numb to it.. They won't break me!! Ima go even harder... Everything in the dark always comes to light! #TMC — Isaiah Thomas (@Isaiah_Thomas2) December 14, 2012 It scans well, though, if you make that stretch. Thomas has seen his minutes dwindle in three consecutive contests following what was thought to be a return to form in a win over Orlando last Friday, one that saw him hit for double-figure points for just the third time since he sat out the team's Nov. 13 loss to Portland because of "Personal Reasons." Since Thomas paired with fellow second-year guard Jimmer Fredette to rack up 17 points, five assists and four rebounds off the bench in a win over the Magic, he's made just six of 19 shots in three games since, with more turnovers (five) than assists (four). All a frustrating continuation in a year gone sour. Thomas was the Kings' lone bright spot in 2011-12, in a year that saw the team rank last in its division while firing a coach along the way. Thomas, a rookie chosen with the final selection in the 2011 NBA draft, far outplayed lottery selection Fredette; and his beaming smile and ebullient nature were used by the team to sell everything from tickets to pizza to hope for a new arena for the franchise in the California capital. Even if the team's owners don't really want that new arena in Sacramento.
