Isaiah Thomas’ new film ‘Mr. Irrelevant’

I’m starting to think the Sacramento Kings did Isaiah Thomas a big favor when they used their second-round pick – and the last one in the 2011 NBA draft – on the former Washington star.
He already had a huge chip on his 5-foot-9 shoulder, but now that chip has a name – Mr. Irrelevant.
It’s also the title of an upcoming documentary about the pint-sized sensation, which chronicles his travels from Tacoma to the NBA.
Thomas is averaging 7.3 points, 2.4 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 17 minutes in 23 games.
Not many rookies are the subject of a documentary, but I got a feeling Thomas will provide enough interesting stories to keep an audience captivated.
The trailer (above) shows glimpses of his home life, his new baby and a meeting with Kevin Johnson, the Sacramento mayor and former NBA star.
Directed by T.J. Regan, the film is expected to be released late 2012. Here’s a link to the first and second trailers.
Thomas could have titled his documentary Mr. Fourth Quarter, Mr. Clutch or The Rookie or Cold Blooded.
