Tom Brady sends a message to Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas: ‘We all have your back’

The connection between two of Boston’s sports superstars runs strong, and Tom Brady’s well wishes to Isaiah Thomas are the latest example.

With the Boston Celtics point guard struggling in the wake of the tragic death of his 22-year-old sister, Chyna, Brady took to Instagram to let Thomas know the city has his back ahead of Game 3 against the Chicago Bulls.

It's how you come back… Good luck tonight. We all have your back! #YourTurn

Of course, Brady knows a thing or two about making a comeback with his back against the wall. And when the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons after trailing 28-3 in Super Bowl LI, Brady texted Thomas saying he was next to get a ring:

The Celtics were down 2-0 in the series headed into Friday night’s game in Chicago, but an injury to Rajon Rondo and an adjustment from coach Brad Stevens helped the Celtics take Game 3, 104-87.

Thomas had another sub-par night, finishing with 16 points on 7-for-18 shooting and nine assists. His teammates lifted him up and carried Boston to a win, though, just like Brady promised.

That’s why he’s the GOAT.
