The Los Angeles Lakers swung for the fences at the NBA trade deadline after agreeing to send Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a 2018 first-round draft pick after the All-Star floor general ran out his welcome with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
With Thomas having gone from an NBA MVP candidate to a player who was moved by two different teams over the course of one season, there has been plenty of conversation concerning whether or not he made the right call to play through the hip injury which hampered him during his final season with the Boston Celtics.
Prior to the Lakers' matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, Thomas met with the media and made it clear that he would have done nothing differently if he had the opportunity to change the course of events which helped lead him to Los Angeles.
"No, I don’t regret it because at that time, I was going through something way bigger than basketball," Thomas stated during an interview with the media in attendance at the Staples Center on Friday night. "So basketball was the only thing that could numb that at that point in time."
