Childhood And Education

The early life of Isaiah Thomas is a rather interesting one. He was born in 1989, and his father's name is James Thomas, and his mother's name is Tina Baldtrip. He was named after Isiah Thomas ( Hall of fame guard of Detroit Pistons and former Indiana Pacers player). This was done when his father lost a bet with his long-time best friend that the Lakers would beat Detroit Pistons in the 1989 finals. If lost, he would name his son after the Laker's nemesis, hall of fame of the Pistons, Isaiah Thomas. So Isiah and Isaiah Thomas are not related. As a child, Isaiah was nicknamed 'Bighead' by his dad and 'Zeke' by his mom.
Born and brought up in Tacoma, Washington, Isaiah attended Curtis Senior High School till grade 11 in University Place, Washington. He used to play for the Varsity basketball team while he was in Curtis High, where he averaged about 31.2 points per game as a junior. As he needed to improve his grades for a scholarship, he repeated his senior year at South Kent School, Connecticut.
