Seemingly overnight, Isaiah Thomas has gone from a largely unknown, sub-6 foot guard, to a superstar.
The 5-foot-9-inch point guard, who played three years of college basketball at the University of Washington, was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the final pick in the 2011 NBA draft.
After spending the first three years of his career wallowing away in Sacramento, Thomas spent a year on the Phoenix Suns, before finally finding a permanent home in Boston. Ever since he joined the Celtics, Thomas has been selected to two NBA All-Star teams.
While Thomas has yet to cash in on a big free agent contract, he has still been able to amass a net worth of $20 million throughout his career, and will certainly earn more now that he has achieved All Star status.
