Isaiah Thomas Refuses To Jump Against Antetokounmpo, Isiah Thomas Would Have!

Even though Isaiah Thomas has never dunked in a game, the 5’8 (don’t believe the NBA official stat of 5’9 because I’m 6’0 and I feel like I’m towering over him) All-Star has serious hops. With that said, he doesn’t have enough hops to win a jump ball against a 6’11¬†Greek Freak with a 7’0 wingspan and that’s why he didn’t even bother jumping.

Thomas did score a game-high 32 against Giannis and the Bucks but unfortunately came up a little short (no pun intended) in the 103-100 loss.

Speaking of short and jump balls, last month, Thomas and 5’9 Tyler Ulis got to participate in the¬†unofficial shortest jump ball ever.

And speaking of jump balls and guys with the name Isaiah Thomas, here’s a clip of 6’1 NBA legend Isiah Thomas winning a jump ball against 7’0 Will Perdue. Click here for more examples of Isiah’s hops.
