Drew Bledsoe Responds to Celtics' Terry Rozier Wearing His Patriots Jersey

Terry Rozier's play speaks for itself.

We see what you did there, Terry.

After Game 1, Rozier inadvertently referred to the Bucks' point guard Bledsoe as "Drew", mixing him up with the former New England Patriots quarterback. It all began when Rozier accidentally called his counterpart Drew Bledsoe in a postgame press conference.

Eric Bledsoe may have claimed that he didn't know who Terry Rozier was during their matchup in the first-round but after a gruelling seven-game series, he not only knows who he is but has also developed respect for him. So it seemed like maybe the two of them had burried the hatchet. But amazingly, when the final buzzer sounded on Game 7, Bledsoe and Rozier actually embraced on the court after the final buzzer sounded in Game 7.

If Rozier wants to replicate his slip of the tongue, the Sixers offer their own target.

While some may see his decision on Monday night as petty, an unneeded continuation of some high school level drama from a series ago, it was pretty amusing.




We'd imagine Rozier will be moving on from the Bledsoe beef with Game 2 on the horizon Thursday, but he certainly went out on a high note.

Rozier explained the reasoning behind the jersey on TNT after the Celtics' 117-101 win on Monday. So, why not take a little victory lap?

It escalated after game two when Bledsoe told reporters, "I don't even know who the $@%# that is."when asked about Rozier's back-to-back 23 point games".

"Even though we haven't talked, I think he knows who I am and I know who he is".

He averaged a series-high 6.7 assists per game to go along with 17.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals over 36 minutes.
