Thomas on Monday returned to where his superstardom ignited as the Denver Nuggets wrapped up their regular-season series with the Boston Celtics.

Isaiah Thomas finally got his TD Garden tribute video Monday night.

With the Nuggets, his third team since leaving the Celtics, he's found it hard to carve out a role since returning earlier this year.

The emotional night continued at the first timeout in the first quarter as Thomas received his tribute video on the big screen.

Thomas also said he'd like to end his career with the Celtics, if possible. But if they do a tribute video, that would mean the world to me as well. "This whole organization, the coaching staff, everybody that I was here with those three years are always going to be family and be special in my heart".

The game marked the first appearance for Isaiah Thomas since the trade more than two years ago.

Thomas, who has struggled with injuries which have limited him to just 41 games over the last two seasons, said Boston "would have probably won a championship already" if he was still on the team. "I was emotional. I nearly cried". That was everything. I appreciate them for doing that. And if given the opportunity I can be an All-Star, I can be All-NBA, I can be all that, because I physically feel great. "This type of love is something that I wanted, that I needed, and I'm glad I was able to come back". If I get an opportunity I'm going to be ready for it, I'm going to take full advantage of it. Thomas said to a massive group of reporters gathered just outside the Nuggets locker room after Denver's 114-105 victory.
