Isaiah Thomas on the Cavs: 'They're not the Monstars'

Paul Pierce jokes that No. 1 pick was his retirement gift to Celtics Lottery presents Celtics with a potential franchise player, but also an Isaiah Thomas-related dilemma

If the Celtics choose to hold on to that #1 pick it is widely believed they'll take University of Washington freshman guard Markelle Fultz at NBA Draft on June 22nd.

While some question if Fultz and Celtics star Isaiah Thomas could co-exist in the same backcourt, Fultz says that wouldn't be an issue at all if Boston does indeed select him. They both have said in the past that they could coexist in the same backcourt at the National Basketball Association level.

"We're not just happy to be here", said Thomas.

Despite his continued remarks about the Celtics in particular, Fultz said he's willing to do whatever is asked of him - and he just wants to win games. "He's a good friend of mine. They just happened to play better than us in Game 1, and we've just got to protect home court in Game 2 and get the win". We want to let everybody in this world know that we're for real, and we're one of the top teams in the National Basketball Association, and with this series we've got to go out and show the world because like everybody knows, everybody is counting us out.

Ransomware attack again thrusts USA spy agency into unwanted spotlight
This ransomware spreads by using a vulnerability in implementations of server message block (SMB) in Windows systems. And it's possible the attackers behind WannaCry are already working on a new version without a kill switch.

Thomas, who earned All-NBA second team honors Thursday, said he'll ultimately leave personnel decisions to Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and his staff. "I mean, whatever happens, happens".

The Boston Celtics GM later revealed their intention of exploring the value out of their No. 1 pick.

On the other hand, Thomas was infamously selected by the Sacramento Kings with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, which is notably the last pick in the entire event.
