Isaiah Thomas returned home this holiday weekend to host his second annual "Memorial Day Zeke-End Basketball Tournament" in Tacoma, Washington.
The tournament brought 24 adult teams littered with NBA talent to Foss High School in Tacoma for the three-day event.
The Celtics were well represented at the tournament, with Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey playing on Thomas' team and Avery Bradley showing up to support his teammates. Former Celtics, Gerald Green and Nate Robinson, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, and Phoenix Suns guard Archie Goodwin joined the Celtics trio in this picture.
Celtics executive Danny Ainge was a little angry with Thomas for not inviting him. Maybe Thomas forgot that Ainge was a two-time champion and one-time all-star as a player.
Hey @Isaiah_Thomas where was my invite to the Zeke end? What, no senior division? Give me @AveryBradleyGo and @KellyOlynyk and we're good💪🏼— Danny Ainge (@danielrainge) May 25, 2015
Ainge may not have been invited, but one of Isaiah's close friends made an appearance. The "friend" you ask? Oh just an undefeated boxer by the name of Floyd "Money" Mayweather, you may have heard of him.

Other NBA players in attendance included Tony Wroten, Peyton Siva, James Johnson, and Rodney Stuckey.
As if the tournament didn't have enough going for it, there was even a shattered backboard!
