The “King of the Fourth” switched New England sports venues Saturday night.
Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas made the trek to Gillette Stadium, where he was on the sideline for the New England Patriots’ divisional-round playoff game against the Houston Texans. Once there, he helped Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, a frequent attendee at TD Garden for C’s games, get pumped up for the big game.
As you probably can tell in the video, Thomas was wearing a Tom Brady jersey, which makes sense, considering the two Boston sports stars text each other “frequently” after meeting during the Celtics’ free-agency pitch to Kevin Durant last summer.
It appears Thomas, who played his college basketball at Washington, has split allegiances, though, as he showed love for the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, when he attended the team’s walk-through while the Celtics were in Atlanta to play the Hawks. Thomas hit the winning shot in that game, too.
That hype didn’t exactly work, though, as Matt Ryan torched the Seahawks in the Atlanta Falcons’ 36-20 win.
