Tom Brady wants grieving Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas to keep hope alive.
The New England Patriots quarterback Friday posted a photo of Thomas on Instagram and wrote, “It’s how you come back…Good luck tonight. We all have your back!”
The encouragement came as Thomas deals with the death of his 22-year-old sister, Chyna. The Celtics also face a 0-2 deficit in their first round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls.
Chyna Thomas died in single vehicle accident Saturday, a day before the Celtics opened their playoff run.
Brady knows a thing or two about comebacks, having engineered an epic come-from-behind victory in Super Bowl LI.
The two athletes got acquainted when the Celtics arranged a trip to the Hamptons to woo free agent Kevin Durant. Durant ultimately signed with the Golden State Warriors.
