Floyd Mayweather shows off stacks of cash after betting on Isaiah Thomas, Celtics (pic)
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a long history of showcasing the stacks of cash he has won on high-money wagers over the years. And Isaiah Thomas’ epic performance in the Boston Celtics’ 129-119 Game 2 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards helped the brash boxer do so once again.
Mayweather took to Instagram to boast his big-time winnings after betting on the Celtics and Thomas, who scored an amazing 53 points in the victory. Mawyweather posted a photograph showing stacks of $100 bills sitting in his lap.
Thomas’ feat made that much more inspiring given it came on what would have been his sister’s 23rd birthday. Thomas’ sister tragically died on April 15 in a car accident.
Thomas and Mayweather are apparently pals, so it’s not surprising Thomas’ family tragedy proved to be motivation enough for Mayweather to lay down a big wager.
Although, as noted earlier, it doesn’t take much to inspire Mayweather to do such things … and then brag about them on social media (see here and here).
The Celtics will look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series when it shifts to Verizon Center on Thursday. Perhaps Mayweather will lay down a huge wager on that game, too.
