If Isaiah Thomas were 6'4", he'd be the best player ever—according to himself.

The Boston Celtics star point guard, who stands at a towering 5'9" (and that's being generous), was asked by Good Morning America's T.J. Holmes how his career would be different with an extra seven inches.

"I'd be the best player ever," I.T. said with a smile. "And everybody would think that."

Thomas went on to say that he's been the shortest player on every team he's ever been on. The All-Star also discussed his frustration with being defined by his stature.

"It's always, 'He's good…and he's 5'9"," Thomas said. "I'm trying to look past it, but I guess it's never going to go away. It's always gonna be, 'Well, he's 5'9".' And, I mean, I'm never gonna be OK with it."
