Isaiah Thomas asks Celtics not to honor him with video tribute after Pierce's objections
Thomas took to Twitter to let the Celtics know he doesn't want to ruin Pierce's night
The beef started when Thomas, who was a two-time All-Star in Boston, asked the Celtics not to play his video tribute during the Cavs-Celtics game on Jan. 3 because Thomas wasn't active and his family wasn't in town. He instead asked them to delay the tribute to the next Cavs-Celtics game in Boston on Feb. 11.
Pierce, since it is the same night the Celtics will retire Pierce's jersey. Thomas immediately said that he meant no disrespect and thought that his video wouldn't take away from Pierce's recognition, but it appears Thomas has changed his tune. He took to Twitter on Tuesday night, asking the Celtics not to honor him on Feb. 11.
The Celtics and Cavs won't meet again after Feb. 11 unless it's in the playoffs, and the Celtics won't likely want to give Thomas a tribute then. So it appears they'll have to wait until next season, if ever, to honor one of the more popular players in recent Celtics history.
