Isaiah Thomas never let his height impede his game while playing for the Curtis Vikings or Washington Huskies, and that's still the case late in his NBA career.
Three-time NBA sixth man of the year and former Rainier Beach star Jamal Crawford tweeted a video Thursday of the 5-foot-9 Thomas throwing down a thunderous off-the-backboard dunk at his old stomping grounds.
Thomas served as a veteran leader for the Charlotte Hornets in 2022 after signing with the team in March.
He averaged 31.2 points per game as a junior playing for Curtis, and his No. 2 jersey is retired at Washington.
Thomas holds the unofficial SBLive title of “The Best Washington High School Boys Basketball Player of the 21st Century.”
