-- Tom Brady is already on to ring No. 7.

When the Patriots posted a #TomTuesday photo of Brady holding up six fingers, one for each of his Super Bowl rings, Brady commented on the photo, saying he is focused on winning another ring.

Brady responded with two hand emojis holding up a total of seven fingers.

In a recent Instagram post, Brady used Jay-Z’s song “On to the Next One” to take a shot at Father Time, just to make it extra clear he is not retiring yet.

Hey Father Time, Just take the L -- @tb12sports

-- Last Thursday, Rajon Rondo hit a buzzer beater at the TD Garden to give his Lakers a 129-128 win over his former Celtics with Kevin Garnett in the crowd.

And now Garnett is opening up on his reaction to his former Boston teammate’s game-winner.

“First off I was thinking, ‘You little bastard,'” Garnett told The Athletic. “That’s the first thing I thought. That’s one of those situations where you’re happy for your bro, but for the village and for the establishment you hate it. Because you’ve been in those shoes. If you’ve ever been in a buzzer-beater, and I’ve been on both sides where I’ve actually hit the shot, and I’ve actually had someone hit the shot on me or against me. I was happy and sad all in one. I’ve never been happy to have my homey be happy for him, and be gassed for him. I think (LeBron James) pushed the crowd over there on purpose to kind of dig at me a little bit on some shots, but it was a good time for Rondo. I was happy for him, man. Bad for my team, but great for ‘Do.”

Garnett also wore a Rondo Celtics jersey to the game.

The two played together in Boston from 2007-2013. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's amazing. It's something that I always worked hard for. You never want to talk about individual awards, but it's something that I always wanted to be a part of. It's something that I've dreamed of getting one day and to finally have one, I'm honored to join the elite crew." -- Jackie Bradley, Jr., on winning a Gold Glove last season
