Isaiah Thomas didn’t end up getting “posterized” by LeBron James in the video above, but in a way he kind of did. Thanks to USA Today photographer Bob DeChiara, I now have a couple of photos to take to Walgreens today to blow-up and print out for my latest office door poster; The current poster is one of Al Pacino in the 1995 classic “Heat,” which was just remastered in 4K and released on Blu-Ray.
The photo of the 5’9 Thomas trying to stop LeBron from scoring two of his 38 points by hanging on him, while LeBron put his hand on the top of Thomas’ head, perfectly represents the Game 1 beatdown the Cavs gave the Celtics in Boston. It was also a nice recreation of LeBron’s dunk on Boston’s Jason “also wore #4” Terry back in 2013.
Speaking of guys who gave the Celtics nightmares and awesome door posters, here’s a great pic of Magic Johnson and the childhood crush of LeBron and mine: Kelly Kapowski!
Speaking of Kelly, after watching Kelly Olynyk put up two points in Game 1, I’m removing him from the Kelly hall of fame because he doesn’t deserve to be next to Kapowski, Brook and the very underrated Kelly Tripucka. Before you try to say anything negative about Tripucka, just remember he made the All-Star game as a rookie and twice in his first three years. If it wasn’t for the trade to hell in Utah, he might have had a hall of fame career.
