Video: Isaiah Thomas’ Road to the NBA
Jimmer Fredette isn’t the only Kings rookie to have a documentary filmed about his journey to the NBA. The Kings other new point guard, Isaiah Thomas is the subject of his own movie as well. From SLAM:
From training in Las Vegas at IMPACT Basketball Academy, to the Chicago Pre-Draft Combine, to working out back home in Tacoma/Seattle, to being selected by the Sacramento Kings in the NBA Draft, this project reveals his entire process from beginning to end.
Here’s Thomas talking about the documentary’s filmmaker earlier this month in his draft diary for Dime:
I also had my man T.J. Regan following me around and documenting the process for me. He’s a young, but accomplished, filmmaker who has directed music videos for artists such as Wiz Khalifa and Nipsey Hussle. Together, we’re working on a documentary of my draft process and potentially first couple of years in my NBA career. It’s something that is fun and kind of different at the same time because he’s capturing the ups, downs, highs, lows, etc. It will definitely be interesting.
The film releases this December.
