When you know, you know.
Thomas, who is returning to Boston on Wednesday for the first time as a starter, was teammates with Smart during his run with the Celtics from 2014-17. He didn't hold back from interrupting reporters to make sure everyone knows that Smart flops. (See the entire sequence play out in the video above.)
Despite being familiar with Smart, don't expect Thomas to know everything about how the Celtics will prepare for the Wizards. Thomas pointed out that only two of his former teammates are still with the team.
His history with Boston means a lot to Thomas, but his only focus on Wednesday will be earning the victory.
"The love is genuine between me and the city," Thomas said. "Hopefully we can just win the game. That's the most important."
