Talk about an odd combination, but apparently boxer Floyd Mayweather and Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas are really good friends. They two are so close that Floyd bought Thomas a $200,000 Bentley.
That however isn’t the only thing Floyd as done for Thomas. This from CBS Boston:
“The Celtics point guard has been friends with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the last five years, ever since Thomas attended one of Mayweather’s workouts in Las Vegas. Mayweather is a big hoop head, so the two bonded immediately.
“We went to a Robin Thicke concert later that night, and since then, we’ve talked almost every day,” Thomas told The Boston Herald of his friendship with Mayweather.
No, a Robin Thicke concert is nothing to write home about. But what about a nice new car? Better yet, how about a $200,000 Bentley? That’s exactly what Mayweather gifted to Thomas in February.
“He’s given me a few gifts before, nice ones, but that one was unbelievable. It had everyone in the NBA talking,” Thomas said. “Every team we played after that, guys would come up to me (and ask), ‘Where’s the Bentley, does Floyd got something good for me?’ It surprised everybody.”
Robin Thicke tickets and a Bentley? Ok then.
