Isaiah Thomas jokes he'd love to return to Celtics for a year in Instagram comment

Isaiah Thomas hasn't forgot about Boston.

The former Celtics guard -- author of an All-Star 2017 season that saw him lead the C's to the Eastern Conference Finals -- is a man without a team in NBA free agency. Disappointing and injury-plagued turns with the Cavaliers and Lakers mean no one will be backing up the Brinks truck this offseason.

But Thomas ran into NBC Sports Boston's A. Sherrod Blakely at McCarron Airport in Las Vegas on Tuesday night and told the reporter that he's feeling healthy. Thomas later took to the Instagram comments to share some love for his former team.

"Tell Boston I'll come back for a year LOL," he wrote. "Good to see you. Miss my Boston fam!"

Waiting on a flight back home and at the airport I run into Isaiah Thomas whose last season in Boston was one of the greatest single seasons ever. He’s in a good place health-wise now which was great to hear. #slowgrind
