Tom Brady knows greatness when he sees it. It’s no surprise that the Patriots quarterback is keeping a close eye on the Celtics and Kyrie Irving.

The C’s guard reached championship greatness with the Cleveland Cavaliers and is flashing it again to start Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers. He most recently scored 37 points in the Celtics’ 99-91 Game 3 win over the Pacers. And Brady at least caught the end of it, based on his latest tweet.

Brady shared a video of his reaction to Game 3 after it went final. As a six-time champion he’s not going to get too excited just yet. But Brady’s mere support is some good positive energy for the C’s.

Irving hasn’t tweeted since apologizing for saying “F**k Thanksgiving”. It’s probably a good thing for him and the team that he’s not paying much attention to Twitter. Brady just can’t expect a response at this point.

All that’s left now for No. 12 is a new shoutout for the Bruins, who have a pivotal Game 5 coming on Friday against the Maple Leafs in Boston. But the Celtics are also on the docket as they face the Pacers in Game 3 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Hopefully some of Brady’s championship powers rub off on them, both tonight and moving forward in the NBA Playoffs.
