Isaiah Thomas might REALLY regret this old tweet about his new teammate LeBron James

Isaiah Thomas is the latest example of why athletes should delete their old tweets. Thomas was just sent to Cleveland in a trade for Kyrie Irving that also sent Jae CrowderAnte Zizic, and Brooklyn’s 2018 first-round pick to Cleveland. He’s now teammates with LeBron James, which is great. Until you do some digging on the timeline, and realize things could get awkward.

In 2010, Thomas tweeted the following as a 21-year-old student-athlete at the University of Washington:

May 13, 2010 was the same day that the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. In that game, James shot 8-for-21, with 27 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists in the 94-85 loss. It was also the game in which James famously walked off the floor, taking off his wine and gold Cavaliers jersey as he entered the tunnel.

Of course, later that summer James would have his now-infamous television broadcast of “The Decision” and join the Miami Heat, going on to win a pair of championships with Dwyane Wadeand Chris Bosh. The bottom line: Isaiah Thomas was a Kobe Bryant stan back in the day, saying that Bryantwouldn’t have ever let a team beat him like James did.

Bryant and the Lakers ended up beating the Celtics that postseason, and Thomas correctly predicted that James would indeed leave Cleveland. Now, Thomas is going to try to help James overcome the Warriors in Cleveland for at least one season.
