Maybe Grousbeck wasn’t just blowing hot air.
The Celtics brought Tom Brady to their meeting, and the New England Patriots quarterback apparently made a big impression.
“I was ready to just say, ‘All right. Let’s go. I’m ready to go,’ seeing Tom Brady there,” Durant said. “Just seeing someone so successful at his craft and just a great ambassador for the game of football and the city of Boston, it was just great to be in the presence of greatness.
“But at the same time, I knew I couldn’t let that distract me. But he was great. It was great to see him.”
If you’re a Thunder fan, here’s the narrative: See, this proves Durant is impulsive.
If you’re not a Thunder fan, here’s the narrative: This proves Durant made a rational decision after months of considering Golden State, because he didn’t overreact to the Brady show.
Or maybe Durant was just harmlessly complimenting another superstar.
