SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Ever since he was a kid, Isaiah Thomas has heard the questions about his size. And, of course, whether he's related to that Hall of Famer with a similar name (He's not).
The only answers that satisfy anybody come on the court.
All of 5-foot-9, Thomas slipped to the Sacramento Kings with the 60th and final pick of the NBA draft out of Washington in large part because of his height. While all the attention focused on the team's first-round pick, former BYU sensation Jimmer Fredette, Thomas has been the one who has been nothing, well, short of spectacular.
Thomas has taken the starting point guard spot from Fredette, earned Western Conference rookie of the month honors for February and is becoming one of the franchise's fresh faces.
