The city of Boston was filled with New England Patriots fans on Tuesday as the team celebrated their Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
But when will the city get to celebrate another championship?
After Isaiah Thomas sent Tom Brady a message of congratulations, the Patriots quarterback told the Celtics point guard, "It’s your turn next."
“He said it’s not over ’til it’s over,” Thomas said, via Celtics.com. “He was just proud of his teammates. That’s what he texted back, that he was proud of his team and the city. Nobody gave up and they just kept fighting. And he was like, ‘It’s your turn next.’ So now he’s putting the pressure on us, but hopefully we can make something happen.”
While the Patriots were storming back in the fourth quarter, many were saying that Brady was following Thomas' lead with his recent clutch play to close out games.
“People keep talking about it, like he took a page from my book,” Thomas said. “But no, I need to take a page from his. He’s got five rings. It’s unbelievable. That’s the greatest quarterback, football player that’s ever been.”
