Sport: Isaiah Thomas downplays Celtics' black attire

Thomas bemoans clock error at end of Game 6

  Thomas bemoans clock error at end of Game 6 By the NBA’s admission, the Boston Celtics should have had an extra second at the end of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.The league’s last two minute report on the game revealed that the Celtics were deprived an extra second at the end of their 92-91 defeat to the Washington Wizards on Friday.

According to Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, that all-black attire was totally a coincidence.

Thomas and his teammates showed up to Friday’s potential elimination Game 6 against the Washington Wizards dressed in all black, but if you ask Thomas, it wasn’t coordinated.

“I wear black all the time,” Thomas said when asked about the attire, via CSN New England. “I’m the first one in this gym, too, so I didn’t see nobody else wearing black.”

NBA playoffs 2017: Celtics earn rapid playoff payoff in reaching Eastern Conference finals

  NBA playoffs 2017: Celtics earn rapid playoff payoff in reaching Eastern Conference finals The payoff starts now, in the wake of a grueling second-round series. The Celtics are in the conference finals, one of the NBA’s last four standing. With that, the franchise has completed an overhaul that is still in its early stages.NBA teams can take a decade or more to find the right mix to pull off a rebuild. The Celtics didn’t rebuild as much as they opted for a quick flip, a task they completed with a pull-away, 115-105 win over the Wizards in Game 7 of the East semifinals on Monday night at home.

When asked if the look was a coincidence, Thomas responded, “I guess so. Call it what you want.”

It’s pretty hard to believe, but even if you do, John Wall took it as a motivator. It’s safe to say that the outfits didn’t have the effect the Celtics would have wanted.
