Isaiah Thomas wants to be water. In his cell phone, the Boston Celtics guard carries a quote from Bruce Lee, the famous martial artist, actor and filmmaker. Thomas owns a collection of Lee books and appreciates many other Lee quotes. But this one’s his favorite. “I think that’s the best quote he has,” Thomas says after reading it from the screen, “because it can adapt to anything.” Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless like water. If you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
Floyd Mayweather: “Floyd just thinks differently. He thinks outside the box. He always tells me, ‘Don’t let them dictate how you think.’ Think like you’re the greatest. He always tells me, ‘You’re 5-9. You shouldn’t be in the NBA. You’re definitely one of the greatest players in the world. So believe that, work hard, and understand that.’ He never wants you to fit into one particular box. He just wants you to think outside the box.”
An aside here: One day this writer bumped into Ainge at a fast-food joint near the Celtics’ practice facility in Waltham, Massachusetts. As he made his way through the cafeteria-style line where they were building his burrito bowl, a not-bashful store employee kept telling Ainge that he should trade Rondo to the Sacramento Kings — and Isaiah Thomas was one of the names the employee mentioned getting in return. The people in Boston’s front office often stress that Ainge takes all advice into consideration and maybe even those outside the organization, too.
