Brady likes what he sees in NBA Finals

Like so many sports fans, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been watching the NBA Finals. And he likes what he sees.

Tom Brady is the one of the ultimate players in the ultimate team sport. As many like to say, a football team is like a chain and only as strong as its weakest link.

Rob Gronkowski, TE -- Gronkowski is probably the best offensive player in football right now. The Western New York native has averaged better than a touchdown per game in his career playing his hometown Bills. Enjoy the show.

Clearly Brady is also the ultimate competitor and takes his team-first mentality to all things, including his sports viewing on TV.

So it's no surprise that even while watching the NBA Finals this week – a series that includes two of the greatest players to ever play the game in Miami's LeBron James and San Antonio's Tim Duncan – Brady marvels at the teamwork and depth as much as the star power on display.

"I think the thing you take from watching those two teams is how good they are as a team," Brady said. "LeBron James without the other guys that he has is nothing. With Tim Duncan and Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, without the guys they have on that team … as an individual you can't succeed in a team sport. Like I said, it's very different than golf or one of those sports that maybe some guys like, I like as a hobby, but team sports to me bring out the best in everybody. They bring out your competitiveness and the discipline and the willingness to do whatever is best for the team and not necessarily the individual."
