Drew Bledsoe wasn’t a stranger to a recharge in relevancy over the course of the Tom Brady era in New England. The Patriots routinely contended for Super Bowls across that two-decade stretch, and the media often reminisced on the role Bledsoe played in the emergence of the greatest quarterback who ever lived.
Bledsoe once again became one of the big talks of Boston sports in the spring of 2018, but it had nothing to do with his former backup or the Patriots, for who, he quarterbacked nine seasons.
Veteran NBA journalist Marc Stein reported on Tuesday that the Milwaukee Bucks have expressed trade interest in the former NBA MVP Rose ahead of the Feb. 9 deadline. Rose is essentially an expiring contract with a $15.6 million club option for 2023-24.
At 34 years old, Rose is a total wild card right now. Although he is still with the New York Knicks, Rose has been cut from their rotation entirely and has not seen a single minute since Dec. 31. In the 26 appearances that Rose has made this season, he holds extremely “meh” averages of 5.8 points and 1.8 assists (albeit in only 12.9 minutes per game).
That said, the 37-17 Bucks could use some playmaking juice off their bench. Joe Ingles, a slow 35-year-old, is their primary second-unit creator, and Jevon Carter (even though he’s a dependable three-point shooter) is a little bit underwhelming as a backup point guard.
The tension only simmered from there. After Milwaukee evened the series with two straight wins, Rozier and Eric Bledsoe engaged in a shoving match in Game 5. Boston eventually won that contest and Rozier maintained Drew Bledsoe’s role in the saga by showing love to the former Patriots signal-caller after the Celtics took a series lead. Boston ultimately eliminated Milwaukee with a Game 7 win at TD Garden, giving Rozier the last laugh over his backcourt counterpart.
But even though Bledsoe and the Bucks were out of the equation, Brady’s predecessor remained a central figure of the Celtics’ 2018 playoff run. Rozier saluted his new good luck charm of sorts by rocking an old-school, No. 11 New England jersey to Game 1 of Boston’s second-round series with the Philadelphia 76ers and Bledsoe returned the favor by sporting a “Scary Terry” t-shirt at a California winery during Game 2.
The fun, organically built storyline reached its peak when Bledsoe returned to the region where he broke onto the NFL scene in the early 1990s. The Washington State product was in attendance for 76ers-Celtics Game 5 and was able to chop it up with Rozier before tipoff. Bledsoe even held a media availability that night in Boston, a rarity for even the most well-known spectators.
