2011-12 Sacramento Kings in Review: Isaiah Thomas

Very seldom does a rookie second-round pick come in and make an immediate impact like Isaiah Thomas did for the Sacramento Kings.  Coach Keith Smart inserted Thomas into the starting line-up on February 17th and the rest was history.  The rookie finished the season averaging 11.5 points, 4.1 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 25.5 minutes per game.  Standing at 5-foot-9, the last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft out-shined all but one player in his entire draft class - top selection, Kyrie Irving. ...
