Tom Brady Rumors
On his meeting with the Boston Celtics and the surprise inclusion of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady: “I was ready to just say, ‘Alright let’s go. I’m ready to go,’ seeing Tom Brady there. Seeing someone so successful at his craft, and just a great ambassador for the game of football and the city of Boston, it was great to be in the presence of greatness. But at the same time, I knew I couldn’t let that distract me. (But) he was great. It was great to see him.”
Ramona Shelburne: Kevin Durant on Tom Brady, “I was ready to just say, ‘OK. Lets go.’ It’s great to be in the presence of such greatness. But at the same time I knew I could t let that distract me.”
The team’s presentation, as well as the inclusion of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady – one of Durant’s favorite players – made a very “favorable impression” on Durant to the point where, according to one source, it’s no longer that big a stretch for him to seriously think about Boston as his next basketball home.
A source told the Daily News Saturday that the Celtics are using four-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady to sell Durant on a free-agent move to Boston. Kevin Durant apparently flew to Boston Friday and then traveled back to the Hamptons with Brady on the 14-seat plane with him.
