AROUND THE WEB:

-- Tom Brady is very excited about Brandon Bolden’s contract with the Patriots.

Bolden posted a photo with an announcement about his return to the Patriots on Thursday and Brady had an explicit response.

Remember Me? -- I’MM BBACKKKKKK #GEAUXPATS #HULKSMASH

A post shared by Brandon Bolden (@bbhulksmash) on

“F--k yeah!!!!!!!!!!!,” Brady commented, to which Bolden responded, “Missed you bro back to work #LFG.”

-- Kyrie Irving has experience with bad fan interactions and commented on the recent blowup between Russell Westbrook and a Jazz fan.

“It happens so often and most of the time doesn’t get documented,” Irving said. “I think this is one of the first times it actually got caught on camera and you caught a player responding like that on camera. and it’s no justification on either side who’s right who’s wrong, but at the same time we’re trying to protect the league that goes about being compassionate for the players, being compassionate for their fans, the interaction, being very, very passionate about your team, your home team, and who you root for, the players, it’s a big thing.”

“And we all try to protect the league and I think that when it’s an individual battle with a person in the crowd and they say something violently disrespectful like that, then it’s gonna warrant a reaction,” he continued. “Because I think at the same time, if we were out and about with our families, ain’t nobody saying no sh-t like that to us. So then it becomes a human being thing, and things escalate and the NBA comes in and does what they’re supposed to do and protect the players.”

Irving said he’s “heard it all” from fans in the stands during his career.

“Utah, Phoenix, California, wherever you wanna go fans are gonna be passionate about their teams, but that’s just taking it too far,” he said. “ And then on top of it, in Utah, the fans are right on top of you … I don’t really mind the fan interaction, but not while I’m at work … let me come to our office and yell in your ear like that. It’s just a respect thing of the game and people’s professions.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I think he's done a good job of embracing that. He's done a good job of not letting that (coming off the bench) affect his aggressiveness or his game and the other thing is, when we bring him in and play him and take (Marcus) Smart out, he can guard the guy Smart's been guarding. And if we leave Smart in, we can move Smart to a ball-handler and pressure a little bit more like we did there in the fourth quarter. Those are good pairings and Jaylen's aggressiveness off the bench has been good ever since he's gotten used to it." -- Brad Stevens, on Jaylen Brown’s secondary role off the bench
