Tom Brady had one of his best years in 2017. He came off a Super Bowl campaign against the Houston Texans. That year, he had a full-fledged QB squad to back him up in case of need. However, NBA star John Wall called him out and made a hilarious request to TB12 during a charity game.

 

NFL-NBA tie-ups are a rare moment to witness. It includes athletes from both sports and provides the fans with a fabulous moment to see. The moment when athletes from distinct sectors interact with each other is like a cherry on top.

The NBA point guard is a skilled passer during the NBA season. There is no question about that. And since his gun-slinging prowess is exposed, there is no refuting that he would thrive on a football field. According to NBC Sports, Wall claims that football was his first sport and seeps confidence while playing, especially when trapping passes. He would be a catastrophe for defensive players with that size and athleticism.

 Tom Brady once gave out a surprise to John Wall

Tom Brady is a gentleman. His gesture towards John rightly says so. The NFL GOAT had a surprise for him in front of his locker at Capital One Arena. The former Patriots QB sent over his best-selling book, “The TB12 Method: How To Achieve A Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance.” TB12 left his autograph with a handwritten note inside the hardcover book that read, “To John, Incredible Player!”
