Former Cav Isaiah Thomas rips Cleveland on Instagram, apologizes on Twitter
Denver Nuggets point guard Isaiah Thomas was blunt with his feelings toward the city of Cleveland.
During a live video on Instagram, Thomas had mostly complimentary things to say about his previous stops in the NBA but described Cleveland as a “s–thole” and that he can “see why [LeBron James] left.”
Thomas later apologized for the comments via Twitter:
I apologize for my choice of words about Cleveland. I was on my live playing around. They don’t show you everything for a reason smh. Right after that I clarified what I said…. All love to everybody who had love for me in Cleveland.

Isaiah Thomas played 15 games for the Cavaliers in 2017-18 after joining the team as part of the Kyrie Irving trade.
His stint was largely forgettable, averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assists while shooting 36.1 percent from the field before the team traded him to the Los Angeles Lakers.
