Caleb Martin bobbled his head to the beat of Rick Ross' "The Boss" as it blared passionately in the winning visitor locker room,
his 2023 Miami Heat Eastern Conference finals hat tilted to the left and a white T-shirt to match.
The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder was the Heat's greatest boss for a large portion of Game 7 on Monday.
He scored 26 points, pulled down 10 rebounds, and made four 3-pointers in the team's 103-84 annihilation of the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.
Martin's efforts came up just short of winning the MVP award for the Eastern Conference finals over Jimmy Butler, his NBA All-Star colleague.
Martin's journey to the NBA Finals, which included being undrafted, waived, given a two-way contract, and playing a key role on a possible NBA winner, seemed deserving of Rick Ross' lyrics.
