THE BET­TER RESTAU­RANT SCENE: CAM­BRIDGE OR BOS­TON

Bos­ton

HIS FA­VORITE RESTAU­RANT

My go-to is Strip by Strega or Strega Wa­ter­front. [Owner] Nick [Varano] def­i­nitely takes good care of me.

MUST-VISIT SPOTS WITH KIDS

[My kids] love Sky Zone in Hyde Park and nd Le­goland [Dis­cov­ery Cen­ter at As­sem­bly Row]. When they’re in town, we’re al­ways at one of those two places.

HIS FA­VORITE PLACE TO SHOP

Bar­neys New York or Saks Fifth Av­enue. I do my own shop­ping. I don’t re­ally go out­side of my box. I like to wear black and keep it sim­ple. And I wear a lot of sweats.

HIS FA­VORITE SWEATS

Nike

HIS FA­VORITE SNEAK­ERS

For bas­ket­ball, the new Kobes [from the Kobe Bryant Nike col­lec­tion]. I also love Jor­dans. My Jor­dan 11s [Air Jor­dan Flight 11 Retro “Space Jam” re-re­lease].

HIS FA­VORITE MOVIE

“He Got Game” star­ring Ray Allen

GOOD MU­SIC

My fa­vorite artist is a rap­per in Los An­ge­les named Nipsey Hus­sle. But you can’t go wrong with Jay Z and Drake and those kind of guys. Chance the Rap­per. J. Cole—his new al­bum is good. I like Ken­drick [La­mar], but he goes too deep for me.

HIS FA­VORITE PRO TEAMS

Well, I love the Seat­tle Sea­hawks, but my dad brain­washed me into be­ing a [Den­ver] Bron­cos fan when I was lit­tle. But, I’m fall­ing in love with the Pa­tri­ots now, be­ing in Bos­ton. For bas­ket­ball, I’m a stu­dent of the game. No mat­ter what team is play­ing I like to watch. And for base­ball, I like the [Seat­tle] Mariners, but I’m start­ing to like the Red Sox.

THE BEST CELTIC EVER

I’ll go with Larry Bird. Watch­ing old tapes of Bird, and high­lights, and hear­ing how peo­ple al­ways talked about him. He was spe­cial. He had that swag­ger. He knew he was a bad dude.

TOM BRADY

He’s ar­guably the best quar­ter­back, ever. He’s a great dude. We text all the time. I got to meet him last sum­mer. Usu­ally those type of guys at the top level have some kind of ass­hole in them. He didn’t have that. He was a real gen­uine guy. He an­swered ev­ery ques­tion I asked, and he had ques­tions for me about bas­ket­ball. He’s a good dude.
