Isiah Thomas


Isiah Thomas, coach of Florida International gets taped by one of the cameraman before the beginning of the second half of the December 17th game between Florida International vs. University of Denver.

When I found out Isiah Thomas would be coaching for Florida International during the summer I instantly thought of the Sun Belt Conference. Reasoning, DU plays in the Sun Belt Conference which would mean they would be playing in Denver giving me opportunity to shoot the legend. And who wouldn't be excited to take photos of a NBA hall of famer, twelve time all star and NBA Finals MVP who is arguably was one of the best players of the 80's with company like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julius Erving, and Charles Barkley.

Thomas was the center attention with fans with a mixture of cheers and boo's in accordance with the controversy while coaching the Knicks. Of course the photographers also focused on him including myself. Amongst the several photos I took of Isiah the one above I think showed how much attention he got during the game. The cameraman that did tape Isiah first asked permission and thank you once he was done. Never seen that before but goes to show you how respected he is.
