Weird, I heard IT was going to be a shell of his former self.

One game.  ;)

I think people were more concerned about his long term health. Also having to hide him defensively. Kyrie is 5 years younger and a better player.

Let's just see how MUCH the Cavs will be WILLING to pay him!!!  That is what I am very impatiently waiting for!!  I predict that he will NOT get close to a max!!!  Because he does not deserve one!!

17 points in 19 minutes. 6/12 from the floor, 3/8 from deep. Impressive first night back.

Good for him.

It's like he simply took a leave of absence...then came back refreshed.

Looks like he didn't skip a beat.

I bleed Green like the rest of us but we're going to have our hands full vs CLE.

If LeBron leaves I can see the Cavs being desperate and giving Isaiah a pretty nice cintrac5t. Not a max, simply cause most GM's are wary of long committed maxes. Isaiah Thomas and Love are still a potent one two punch. You just need to add defenders around them to make up for their weak defense.

I know one game with IT is a very small sample size but I have a feeling that he's going to get his Brinks or close to it.

If he doesn't get it with CLE then he'll get it somewhere else.

Too early and no max

20 million x 4 is my prediction

He's not playing tomorrow (thank God), but when he does (in Feb?) all I can hear is this sound in my head

Oh my I hope he doesn't read CelticsBlog....

He'll surely use some of this stuff as bulletin board material...

I can't see anyone paying him less than 25 mil per..

Look I'm an IT fanboy so I'm a bit biased. But I don't see anyone paying him less than 25 mil..

It felt so long since I've seen him play. Great comeback game for IT!

When I saw his layup with 30 secs to go in the 1st, as he fell on the ground, immediately I went: "Ouch! Is he good?" I know he was good after that small fall, but I think that I sympathize with him too much not to worry about it.
