On the day of the Boston Celtics game three first round matchup with the Chicago Bulls, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shared some good luck wishes over Instagram to the team and point guard Isaiah Thomas as they try to dig themselves out of an 0-2 series deficit.
For Thomas, it has been an emotional series after tragically losing his sister in a car accident 24 hours before game 1. In between games 2 and 3, Thomas flew home to his native Tacoma, Washington to be with his family.
Brady first met Thomas on Long Island during a summer meeting with then free agent Kevin Durant along with Celtics magament and since that time has become a friend.
Members of the Patriots have been very active in their support of the local NBA team over the past few seasons, most notably running back LeGarrette Blount and head coach Bill Belichick who have been making recent appearances at games.
