EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. — The client wanted a 10-day house rental in the Hamptons that offered privacy and proximity to East Hampton Airport. Several important guests would be visiting. The real estate broker handling the account lined up three options. The first one she showed the client’s manager was a farmhouse built in the 1800s. The door frames were deemed too low. “We would cut to the chase much better if I knew who it was,” said the broker, Renee Gallanti, recalling how she was not told at first who the client was for that house-hunting mission in 2016. “At first they tried to give very little information at all. And after we got to the first house and the ceilings were too low, we shifted gears.” The client, she soon learned, was Kevin Durant, the 7-foot NBA All-Star. He was about to become a free agent for the first time — and would soon find himself at the heart of a courtship unlike any the NBA had ever seen. Durant ultimately picked the … [Read more...] about Inside the house where Kevin Durant hosted Tom Brady, the Celtics

After Monday’s appearance, however, the Patriots quarterback might prefer to never return at all, given the savage mockery he took for the outfit he wore this year.

Kelly gave an account of the Trump-Belichick call to a Republican Senator last week, with the Times describing the chief of staff as “sanguine” about his influence over how Trump spends his day. The question of the president’s schedule has recently taken on a new urgency as one of Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, … [Read more...] about President Trump and Bill Belichick reportedly talked on the phone about Tom Brady last week
Welcome back to the Boston.com sports mailbag. Every week we’ll respond to your questions about the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and anything else tangentially related to Boston sports. Have a thought, theory, or question for the mailbag? Send them into [email protected] Perhaps you’ve been distracted by the Red Sox’ hot start or the Celtics and Bruins’ playoff runs, but the NFL draft is right around the corner. And the Patriots have everyone guessing. @Raudy06: Given the picks the Patriots have in the first and second round, Brady’s eventual retirement, as well as having no backup, is it safe to assume the Pats can gamble for a QB? Nik: I wouldn’t ever pretend to know Bill Belichick’s next move. It’d probably benefit us all to stop trying to guess it. But yeah, that certainly seems like the logical move.

The visiting New England Patriots were just short of the marker, and now head coach Bill Belichick had a choice. It was fourth down and they were sitting at their own 45 yard line, with just inside of two minutes left, both in the game and in this dispiriting season. If nothing else, dignity was at stake here. The book said to punt. Instead, Belichick looked out at Drew Bledsoe and told his quarterback to stay on the field. Why not just put an end to it with one play here? On the CBS telecast, the announcers perked up.
