BOSTON (CBS) — Isaiah Thomas has practically been a one-man storyline with his social media escapades in recent weeks. His activity has only picked up in the wake of rumors that the Celtics are looking to acquire a number of big-name free agents and trade targets this offseason.
His latest eye-catching moment came on Instagram on Wednesday, when Paul George’s Pacers teammate Lance Stephenson posted an Instagram photo begging George to stay in Indiana.
Isaiah was quick to comment on Stephenson’s photo, saying “Well he’s gone bro LOL.”
Stephenson, whose Pacers got swept out of the first round of the NBA Playoffs by the Cavaliers, shot back at Isaiah with “U just scared because u know we can beat y’all.” To which Isaiah swiftly replied, “We blasted y’all every game this year. Y’all are the last team I’m worried about my brotha lol.”

Isaiah has also recently commented on social media in an attempt to recruit Clippers big man Blake Griffin.
Isaiah’s Instagram shenanigans may not ultimately help the Celtics land anyone, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
