Let's never forget one thing....nobody battled harder to achieve greatness as a Bruin than Tim Thomas did. He was never handed anything by anyone, and had to prove the doubters wrong at every level. If/when my son asks me about his career, I'll make sure he understands that TT proved that as long as you believe you're good enough, then it doesn't matter what everyone else says about you.
In the end, this is actually a better end than him retiring because he's off the books. I hope he retires, because it killed me to watch Bledsoe and Pedro Martinez struggle at the end and I put Thomas in that same group in terms of my all time favorites.

That's how it starts—the fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men… cruel.
