FOXBORO, Mass. — Green runs deep at New England Patriots practices this summer.
Just over a week after Brad Stevens paid Bill Belichick a visit at a Patriots training camp session, his star player followed suit Monday.
Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas showed up at Gillette Stadium — rocking a Patriots hoodie, no less — to take in New England’s joint session with the Jacksonville Jaguars with his two young sons, Jaiden and James.
Thomas also met briefly with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and held an impromptu autograph session with fans.
Thomas grew up in Tacoma, Wash., as a Seattle Seahawks fan, but he’s developed plenty of love for the Patriots since coming to Boston in 2015. Considering the All-Star guard also exchanges “frequent” text messages with star quarterback Tom Brady, we can understand we why he’s a fan of the five-time Super Bowl champs.
Just as long as he doesn’t try to test that injured hip on the practice field.
