Gever Tulley, writer and speaker, once said, “Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work though difficult problems.” Well playas…Isaiah Thomas has definitely been givin’ a chance to work through difficult problems. Just as the playoffs were startin’ a couple of weeks ago his younger sister was killed in a car accident. Ole boy fought his way through the first round leadin’ the Celtics past the Bulls even after bein’ down 0-2 despite dealin’ with his loss.
On Saturday ole boy attended his sister’s funeral in Tacoma, Washington after finishin’ off the Bulls in Game 6 on Friday. Then he flew back to Boston on Sunday to start the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Wizards. He didn’t get back until 4am and six hours later the dun was at pre-game walk-through!!! NUTS!!! Talk about bein’ resilient bruh!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! With all of that on his head ole boy hasn’t missed a game in the playoffs and has been ballin’ out of control. The Wizards came out of the ride and jumped all over the Celtics and at one point had them down 17 points early in the first quarter.
Durin’ that same quarter I.T. get’s his front tooth knocked out while chasin’ Otto Porter as he was receivin’ a pass. He ran into ole boy’s elbow and the tooth hit the floor bruh. That should have been enough for a boy to go sit down especially with everything he’s been dealin’ with right? WRONG!! That dun just picked the tooth up and kept it movin’.
Not only did the Celtics come from bein’ down 17 points but the dun that suddenly looks like Charlie the Pimp put the team on his back. Thomas led all scorers with 33 points goin’ 11 of 23 from the field spittin’ all over everybody playa.
If you didn’t respect the heck out of Isaiah Thomas before these playoffs started you have no choice but to put some “respeck” on his name now. The resilience that he’s shown is amazin’. Big Props to that dun for not only holdin’ it down for his family but for his team too. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun/ole boy: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
