Isaiah Thomas: If Taller, I’d be Best Player in World

Basketball Insiders

Isaiah Thomas on his height:

If I were taller, the season I had would be getting even more attention. For sure. There’s no doubt about that. People always try to find something that I don’t do well, or that the small guy doesn’t do well, and put it against him. For instance, when you’re smaller they always say you’re a defensive liability. If somebody scores on a 6-5 guy, it’s like, “Oh, that’s good offense.” If somebody scores on a 5-9 guy, it’s like, “Oh, he’s a liability; he’s too small.” It’s always something.

If I were 6-3 or 6-5, I’d be the best player in the world. No doubt about it. And that’s not just me thinking that; I mean, the world would think that.
