Basketball legend Isiah Thomas' son, Joshua "Zeke" Thomas, celebrated his mom, Lynn Kendall, as she turned sixty with a touching tribute on Instagram.


Joshua "Zeke" Thomas, son of retired basketball star Isiah Thomas, has reasons to celebrate amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The pro athlete's son celebrated his mom, Lynn Kendall's 60th birthday with a heartfelt Instagram post. Zeke shared a picture of himself and the 60-year-old, all smiles as they posed side by side.

The pair appeared in high spirits in their adorable outfits. Kendall wore a pink blouse with a decorative neckpiece while Zeke looked dapper in a blue blazer.

The NBA icon's son also wrote a touching tribute to his mom, commending her for seeing him through his life's journey. It read:

"Happy Birthday to my beautiful mom! 60 never looked so good! Thank you for always looking out for me and teaching me to stand up for what's right and love myself!"


Zeke, who openly declared his gay status in 2008, concluded the touching tribute with a note of thanks to his mom for looking out for him.

Kendall and the former NBA champion, Thomas are together parents to the now-32-year-old, whom they welcomed in 1988, three years into their marriage.

The duo also has a daughter, Lauren. Aside from their shared offspring, Thomas has a love child, Marc Edward, from his fling with a Michigan woman, Jenni Dones, in 1986.

Although the revelation of the brief affair and the resulting child almost threatened Kendall and Thomas' marriage, the two scaled through. Remarkably, they devoted their time to bringing up their kids the right way. When asked about how his dad's fame affected his life's choices, Zeke divulged:

"My dad never pressured me into those athletics. In fact, when I started doing theatre, he was so thrilled about it. He came to all my shows."


Kendall's 60th birthday came days after Thomas revived his bitter history with NBA legend Michael Jordan which began in 1985.

The Hall of Famer made the news earlier this week when he shared a video on social media, which questioned Jordan's legendary title as the greatest basketball player of all time.

Many saw Thomas' post as his way of affirming Fox Sports' star Nick Wright's earlier assertions that Jordan was a "total and complete loser." However, neither of the NBA veterans has acknowledged the claims.

Notwithstanding the impending heated exchange between the sports legends, Kendall's birthday is certainly worth the day off from the age-long brawl.
