Original skills, skills and skills
Looking at the short tough guards in the NBA, Iverson ranked first in the minds of the master of skill, and Thomas was second.
Today's little Thomas has also become a name active in online media, rather than appearing on the NBA court.
After playing an elephant-level performance in the 2016-17 season, the little assassin has never been able to return to his peak form of averaging close to 30 points per game.
Hip problems almost ruined his entire basketball career. The offensive end was repeatedly capped, and the defensive end became a fatal hole. Neither the Cavaliers, Lakers or Nuggets could take him as one of their future development plans. Just like that, Thomas Jr. After tossing around, they were disliked by people and finally forgotten.
But in May of this year, Thomas Jr. quietly completed his hip replacement surgery!
"Reborn" he was finally able to play with two legs. Thomas told ESPN: "There is no more pain. I can now perform movements within a full range. For the past three years, I have tried to fight the world with one leg. The best players on the game. I need my kids to help me put on socks every morning."
Hip replacement, also called artificial hip replacement, is an artificial prosthesis, including femur and acetabulum (the acetabulum made of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene at home and abroad, and the artificial thigh made of low-strength modulus metal) Bone), using bone cement and screws to fix the normal bone to replace the diseased joint.
It is difficult to empathize with all that Thomas has experienced.
In the case of a height of only 1.75 meters, he has to bring a injured leg to fight against those strong men. In the past five months, he still needs his son to help him put on socks.
After the operation, Thomas was finally able to return to his previous training, including the high-intensity training of weightlifting and squat in one day. In the process of training, Thomas said that he can finally be like a 31-year-old player The way it should be.
is not only willpower, he is also using scientific methods to continuously prove it.
Due to the epidemic this season, the league has been suspended for a period of time. Among them, the players who recover from the injury benefit the most. They can use the suspension to deal with their injuries. Thomas Jr is one of them.
During the suspension, he completed a hip replacement. In his opinion, he has returned to the level of a normal player in the league and is ready to fight at any time. He also hopes that a team can give him a chance next season.
In fact, Thomas had already applied for a job online a few days ago. He is always active on Twitter, but he still has a sensitive and humble heart.
Then Thomas retweeted this tweet and commented: "The Warriors need to be operational, and I am willing to be their substitute!"
After all, Thomas Jr. has performed well in the Wizards this season, averaging 12.2 points, 1.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 23 minutes, and both field-goal percentage and three-pointer percentage are over 40%.
Perhaps he is no longer the little assassin who was able to lead the team into the Eastern Conference finals with James during the Celtics era, but he can definitely help the team win some key games as a part of the team.
The biggest problem now is that fewer and fewer teams will be willing to give Thomas a chance.
Now that he is 31 years old, his injury history and age have urged him to leave the league. What he thinks now is no longer the 150 million maximum salary contract of a cash truck and complaints about the former team, but more Some opportunities to play.
I also hope that Thomas Jr. can truly usher in a rebirth after completing the hip replacement. Even if he leaves, he will have a wonderful season!
