Yep, that’s Hall of Famer, two-time NBA champion, NBA Finals MVP and former Detroit Pistons point guard Isiah Thomas who is awed by (Kyrie) Irving. Of course, Thomas is also the oft-criticized former New York Knicks coach and president, but that’s for another story.

This is the one where Thomas – one of the best scoring point guards to play the game – describes his affection for Irving, and proclaims that if any small player can lead a team to an NBA title in this land of big men, Irving can.

“He is definitely going against the grain – a small man trying to win in a big man’s league,” Thomas said. “But if anybody can do it, I believe he’s the one guy that is capable of doing it.”
