Isaiah Thomas has a long way to go before he is to basketball what Tom Brady is to football.

But the 5'9" Boston Celtics All-Star wants to meet the New England Patriots quarterback and "pick his brain" about what it takes to win at the highest level.

Per ESPN.com's Chris Forsberg:

I got the chance to talk to Kobe. I'm real good friends with Floyd Mayweather, so I get to pick guys-like-that's brains. I just would like to sit down and actually meet [Brady] and also just pick his brain about winning championships and how he goes about his day, how he prepares. I like his preparation to everything.

According to Forsberg, Thomas "smiled wide" when someone brought up similarities between the two.

After the Sacramento Kings drafted him 60th overall in 2011, the 27-year-old bounced around before becoming a full-on star with the promising Celtics.

"I just want to grow," Thomas said. "Not just being a basketball player but being a leader in all aspects, all facets of the game. And why not learn from the best?"
