Allen Iverson Told Isaiah Thomas That He’s Cut From The Same Cloth As Him


    Allen Iverson is a major fan of Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas. The Answer see’s a lot of himself in IT. The passion, the grit, the ability to put heart over height, Thomas definitely has a lot of A.I. in him. The 5-foot-9 guard is averaging 26.0 points and 6.4 assists per game, which are pure Iverson numbers.

    IT recently revealed that his idol texted him and told him that he’s been watching and wants to see him keep killing it the way he has. Thomas also said that Iverson told him that he is cut from the same cloth as him. This is major praise coming from one of the greatest players and the greatest little man of all-time. Via ESPN:

    “It’s just like, when you have a stamp from arguably the pound-for-pound best player ever, it’s like, I’m not going to listen to nobody else. I already got the stamp. [Iverson] already said I was pretty good and that I’m cut from the same cloth as him. And those type of things only motivate me to keep going.”

    “It was real early in the morning that he texted, like 8:30, so he must have been watching highlights [of the Minnesota game] or something,” Thomas said, unable to muffle a smile. “I told him, ‘I appreciate it and that I’m just trying to be like you.’ He was like, ‘Say no more.’ Those texts man, it just motivates me to keep going. Someone like that is watching me without me even reaching out to him, so I guess I’m doing something right.”
