Thomas was referring to Brown’s flat-top look, which was actually becoming one of the more recognizable and iconic hairstyles in the league. Alas, Brown is switching things up this year.
Although he played just over two seasons in Boston, Thomas forever ingratiated himself with the Celtics fan base after a spectacular 2016-17 season where he averaged over 30 points per game and was named to the All-NBA Second team. Thomas also led the the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals.
In fact, former Celtics point guard Terry Rozier told Jonathan Abrams of Bleacher Report that he respects Thomas as much as anyone else in the league:
“I might be joking around with some of the older guys, some of the veterans, we all playing around, but it wasn’t a game to him,” Rozier said. “And he let it be known that he wasn’t messing around, because it shows in the game. First quarter, he probably just runs off 13 points, and it just like, Damn he’s the smallest guy out there, but how is he doing it? I’m pretty sure it come from hard work and watching that film.”
As for Brown, he has made overtures to the Celtics about singing an extension, but the two sides do not appear to be close on a new deal.
Brown will be a restricted free agent after this upcoming season, which figures to be the most important of his career. Thomas will look to prove himself with the Wizards after signing for the veteran’s minimum.
