24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Isaiah Thomas’ 22-year-old sister Chyna Thomas passed away yesterday in a tragic accident in the state of Washington. In what have been a devastating and heartbreaking 24 hours for Thomas and his family, the 5’9″ point guard decided to play for his Celtics in Game 1 against the Bulls. Before the game, an emotional moment was caught on camera in which Thomas had his head down and was in tears as Avery Bradley condoled him. There was a moment of silence held for Chyna in the pregame in which Thomas was very emotional. The amount of heart it takes to do what this man is doing right now is truly unmeasurable. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.
