Isaiah Thomas Jared Zevzavdjian

What inspired him

Isaiah Thomas was inspired by his height because when a 6’2 player scored on him they would tell him he was too small but when a 6’4 player scores on a 6’2 player they say it was a good shot. That made him work harder and use his height for advantages.
