Isaiah Thomas crying

Isaiah Thomas' sister Chyna tragically passed away in a car accident a day before the Celtics were set to begin their playoff push. The star point guard was obviously overcome with grief.

There was talk about Thomas missing Game 1 against the Bulls but Thomas persevered and scored 33 points in a loss. Everyone talked about his strength and how brave he was for going out there... except Charles Barkley. The NBA on TNT host said when he saw Thomas crying on the sideline it made him "uncomfortable" and that it was a "bad look."

The video of Thomas crying was hours before the game, not minutes. No matter when it was, you can't question Thomas' heart for going out there, leaving everything on the floor, and being there for his team during a difficult time in his own life.
