The Phoenix Suns guard spoke with Blake Ellington of SB Nation's Sactown Royalty about his departure from the Kings and how he feels about the franchise now, via CBSSports.com's James Herbert.
Thomas' most interesting quote lay near the end of the article when he discussed his intentions upon playing against the Kings.
"I tell everybody I love Sacramento, I always will love Sacramento, but when we play them I'm going to kill Sacramento," he said.
It seems like there's no bad blood there. Maybe the Kings should've given second thought to signing Darren Collison, essentially setting the stage for Thomas' departure.
I read the full interview this morning (http://www.sactownroyalty.com/2014/7/31/5954279/Isaiah-Thomas-Departure-From-Kings)
The last sentence bothers me...... obviously the Kings were fine with IT leaving, albeit to the dismay of many fans especially at the reasonable contract he left for, but its not like the Kings were exactly going out of their way to keep Young Zeke so idk why the writer makes it seem like the Kings were shocked that IT left after the signing of Collison.
And I wouldn't expect anything less from IT, his confidence and fire is what helped him make it to the league so I would hope he has Sacramento marked on his calender and tries to light us up. The guy may be little, but he has the biggest chip on his shoulder possible and I hope he continues proving the detractors wrong, Kings front office included.
