Obviously this is tremendous news for both the Celtics and Isaiah Thomas himself. The last time the Celtics had an All-Star was in 2013 when Kevin Garnett was voted in as a starter. It's clear that coaches around the NBA have taken notice of the young guard's improved play this year and after all the campaigning by Thomas and fans around the NBA, it's good to see that hard work has paid off for Thomas.
Going from the last pick in the NBA Draft to one of the best young guards in the NBA and an All-Star is something truly special to be proud of for Isaiah and Celtics fans will definitely enjoy watching him represent the green during All-Star Weekend.
