Isaiah Thomas is heading into his fifth NBA season, by this time he has at the very least made a name for himself. But unluckily for him, that name is a little too close to another great who once played his sport.
Off a year where he sparked the Celtics and almost won 6th Man of the Year, Thomas has proven to be one of the most effective undersized players the league has seen. He’s a unique talent and a relentless worker, but apparently it still isn't enough for some basketball fans.
So when a tweet came his way from an unintentional fan thanking Isaiah, or rather attempting to thank Isiah Thomas for a picture he took with her, the response was almost surely going to be drenched in sarcastic bitterness:
Well, that sarcasm wasn't taken lightly from this confused and outraged fan with the Twitter handle @highsteppin. She went on to rip the Celtics PG, who she didn't even seem to know existed when she sent the tweet, as well as question his lack of game as the reason for the confusion:
@Isaiah_Thomas get the fuck off twitter and step yo game up, so it won't be no mistakes about it! #Petty Pendergrass u fuckin w: the wrong 1
I guess Isaiah still needs a little time to totally clear from Isiah. My personal favorite from the long-lasting rant, that may very well still be going, was when she claimed “it’s only 1 Isaiah Thomas as far as I’m concerned.” The intent there sure backfired with a typo.
So while Isaiah Thomas might not live up to the legacy of Isiah Thomas that @Highsteppin has placed upon him, I guess this no-name in her eyes can at least bask in the fact that he has more followers on Twitter than Isiah. Or that he hasn't become a disastrous GM, yet. Guess that’s a start.
