Marcus Smart gushes about Jayson Tatum, gives health update in Twitter AMA

By Darren Hartwell June 29, 2020 12:00 PM

Marcus Smart is itching for the 2019-NBA season to resume — and tweeting his way through the downtime.

With the NBA restart in Orlando about a month away, the Boston Celtics guard opened his Twitter feed up to fans Sunday night in a virtual “Ask Me Anything” session.

Turns out lots of people were up with lots of questions.

Smart talked plenty about his current and former teammates, admitting he misses ex-Celtics guard Terry Rozier while showing some love for big man Daniel Theis.

Smart had especially high praise for young wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, insisting the former could be the best player in the NBA one day.

As for Smart himself? The 26-year-old revealed he’s been playing pickup regularly and feels no ill effects from testing positive for COVID-19 in March.

Smart also is bullish on the Celtics’ chances as they enter the Orlando “bubble” as the Eastern Conference’s No. 3 seed.

Boston and 21 other teams will have to adapt to playing in front of no fans. Smart wouldn’t mind some arenas pumping in their own “crowd noise,” though, and has a couple creative ideas for the league to consider.

Above all, Smart just wants to get back to playing basketball.

Training camps for bubble-eligible teams are set to begin this week, and the Celtics’ first game in Orlando is set for July 31 against the Milwaukee Bucks. Only four more weeks, Marcus!

Marcus Smart: Ex-Celtics teammate Isaiah Thomas ‘best to ever do it under 6 feet’

By Justin Leger June 28, 2020 3:17 PM

Celtics fans will forever appreciate what Isaiah Thomas did for them throughout his three seasons in Boston.

The 5-foot-9 guard really burst on the scene for the C’s during the 2015-16 campaign, when he played in all 82 regular season games while averaging 22.2 points and 6.2 assists. He was named to the All-Star team then, and again the following season when he averaged 28.9 points while shooting 46 percent from the field and finishing fifth in league MVP voting.

Simply put, Thomas was exactly the kind of spark plug the Celtics needed during those seasons, and it was a shock when he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the August 2017 deal that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston.

Nearly three years later, I.T.’s contributions haven’t been forgotten by the Celtics fans and players that were by his side during those thrilling seasons.

On Sunday, Thomas quote-tweeted a post from CBS Sports that highlighted his sensational 2016-17 season. He wrote, “NOBODY UNDER 6ft comes close.”

Thomas’ former Celtics teammate Marcus Smart agrees.

“Best to ever do it under 6’ my brother @isaiahthomas,” he wrote shortly after I.T. posted his tweet.

There’s no denying the immense respect Thomas and Smart still have for one another, as Thomas responded by calling Smart “one of my favorite teammates ever.”

There have been some great players under the 6-foot mark, but it’s hard to argue against Thomas as the most talented of the bunch. If not for the tear in his hip that derailed his promising career, he’d likely still be producing at an All-Star level.

Currently, Thomas is a free agent as he was traded from the Washington Wizards to the Los Angeles Clippers, who waived him three days later.

While we may never witness superstar I.T. again, there’s hope that another team will give him a shot to prove he still has plenty left in the tank.
