A perk of playing in the NBA: rubbing elbows with celebrities. A perk of playing in the NBA and befriending Floyd Mayweather: receiving perhaps the most lavish gift you could possibly imagine. If social media is to be believed, the boxing legend gave Phoenix Suns guard Isaiah Thomas a Bentley to celebrate his 26th birthday.
Yeah, that’s definitely a Bentley. And here’s Mayweather wishing Thomas a happy birthday just hours before the latter posted the photo above:
The diminutive athletes have been close friends ever since Thomas watched Mayweather train for a bout in Las Vegas during summer 2011. Thomas has said in the past that Mayweather calls him before games to offer words of encouragement, too.
Sage advice and a Bentley? Money seems like a pretty good friend to us.
