Isaiah Thomas using Twitter to recruit stars in free agency

BY foxsports • June 15, 2015

Isaiah Thomas is the best player the Boston Celtics have. The feisty point guard is nearly as good a scorer as any in the league (seriously) and gives defenders nightmares off the dribble and in transition.

But Thomas doesn't want to be the best player on his own team. He (hopefully) knows that he isn't winning a championship that way. So instead of leaving free agency up to general manager Danny Ainge and the rest of Boston's front office, Thomas has taken to Twitter to recruit some of the best players in the league.



This is mostly a playful joke, but who knows what serious discussions Thomas is having in private with guys like LaMarcus Aldridge and Marc Gasol. The latter seems like a distant long shot to ever consider Boston, but Portland's All-NBA forward is a slight possibility. 

And a slight possibility needs all the convincing in the world.
