Isaiah Thomas is one of the biggest - no pun intended - success stories in the NBA today.

Although he only stands at a pint-sized - in NBA terms - 5'9", the Celtics point guard is a dynamic scorer and has risen to become Boston's franchise player.

Last time out against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Thomas put up 29 points and managed to get himself into an on-court altercation with Wolves forward Gorgui Dieng, all 6'11" of him.

Despite the clear difference in height, Thomas had no qualms about approaching Deng and standing up for himself, and the numbers he continues to put up do all the talking regardless.

Thomas is currently averaging 26.4 points a night this season and that is miles above his career average of 17.4.

Despite all of his good work, the 27-year-old sent out a tweet yesterday revealing the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer that had reached out to him and offered his support.

Allen Iverson is a legend of the game in every sense of the word, and he is considered a trailblazer by many of the pros who consume the league today.

Apart from his legendary crossover, The Answer was an electric scorer and playmaker, but, most importantly, he did things his way.

If he sees a bit of himself in Thomas, the point guard has a very bright future indeed.
