Tom Brady was spotted in Las Vegas for the Aces’ first win of the WNBA season amid the NFL games he will be in attendance for in the fall.

Brady, who purchased a minority stake in the Aces from team majority owner Mark Davis in March, was in Sin City Tuesday as the players received their title rings for the second straight time before beating the Phoenix Mercury, 89-80.

The 45-year-old former quarterback, who revealed his Netflix roast “affected” his children after brutal jokes about his divorce from Gisele Bundchen, sat next to Davis and WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert, who greeted coach Becky Hammon and the players as they were introduced to the crowd. Raiders coach Antonio Pierce was also at the game.

This season, the Aces hope to be the first team since the Houston Comets in 1997-2000 to win at least three WNBA titles in a row and the second club to accomplish the feat.

Las Vegas became the first team since the Los Angeles Sparks in 2001-02 to repeat when the Aces beat the New York Liberty in four games last year.

He concluded by saying: “All I can say is that we are going for a treble. »

WNBA Finals MVP A’ja Wilson, who suggested this week that Caitlin Clark being white was a “huge” reason for her rise to fame, was met with chants of “MVP!” by the sold-out crowd.

“We are very grateful to have a fan base that supports us,” Wilson told fans. “We are lucky to be in this situation. We’ve worked hard to get here, so we just want to say thank you.

Engelbert could have been in Connecticut for Caitlin Clark’s debut, but he instead took center stage in Las Vegas.

“My favorite part of my job is handing out the trophy and, the following year, handing out the rings,” Engelbert said before the ceremony. “So that’s important – back-to-back champions.”
