Brady’s time in Tampa Bay has seen success so far. He hopes to carry on with that momentum, but New England does not plan on letting up on him in the slightest. LeBron James knows a thing or two about facing his old team and he had some wisdom to impart while speaking on Monday Night Football.
“I remember that day like it was yesterday. December 2, 2010. It was rough. I got no sleep the night before. I already knew the adversity and how crazy it was going to be. It was very challenging … I know Tom did so many great things down there in Foxborough, down there with the Patriots. But they’re gonna root for who they root for and you know they’re gonna root for the Pats. It can get a little ugly. He’s got to go in there and quiet the crowd like I was able to do the night of December 2, 2010.”
LeBron James is arguably the best pro baller in the game today, but he had a couple of offers to play for the NFL during the NBA lockout in 2011. King James even still has the jerseys they sent him.
We’ll have to see how the Patriots vs Buccaneers turns out, but Brady and Rob Gronkowski are returning to familiar soil that might not be too welcoming this time around.
