Felger: Thomas 'a small-minded chump'

Michael Felger has a few words for Tim Thomas over the Bruins' goalie's refusal to attend a White House ceremony honoring the Bruins for their Stanley Cup championship.
And those words aren't, "Way to go, big guy."

"I think it's an embarrassment. I think Tim Thomas looks like a small-minded chump," Felger said on 'Uno's Sports Tonight' Monday, and that was just the beginning:

"This is part of what's wrong with the country, is that everyone turns it into a political thing and it's not a political thing. It's about the office, it's about the event, it's about respecting your country.

"Let me ask you this, Tim Thomas: Have your property rights been infringed upon? Do you really have it this bad in this country? You make 5 million a year playing a game, with complete freedom. Do you really have it that bad?

"And this is not a left or a right thing. Look, I hate it when Bruce Springsteen goes off on the president. I'm a Pearl Jam fan. Eddie Vetter has this habit, in the middle of Pearl Jam concerts, to go railing on George Bush. I hate that, too.

"You guys got it pretty good. Quit politicizing everything when no one's asking for your political opinion.

"I think Tim Thomas looks like a total chump today. Just like Mark Chmura looked like a chump with the Packers when he wouldn't go see Clinton and on and on. Not everything has to be political."

Isaiah Thomas appears to be channeling the New England Patriots' "No days off" slogan.

The Boston Celtics guard spent Friday night, in the middle of the NBA offseason, studying film. He was up past midnight to take a look at Boston Celtics' game tape, according to ESPN.com's Chris Foresberg, who posted a picture on Twitter of Thomas hard at work.

Thomas finished the 2016-17 season with 28.9 points per game, 5.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes. He helped the Celtics earn the NBA Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed, and contributed a handful of clutch performances as Boston charged to the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won the series, 4-1.

We're thinking that's not a regulation height rim.

And the All-Star dunk contest next year might have to be sanctioned by NASCAR.
