Las Vegas Aces star Kelsey Plum is having a stellar year in the WNBA, averaging career highs in points, assists and field goal percentage. His breakout season caught the attention of many fans, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

After seeing her perform in person earlier this season, the seven-time Super Bowl champion showed his respect by sending her a gift package with some cool gear. Plum posted a video to his Instagram Story on Friday showing off the contents, which included a TB12-signed Brady Buccaneers jersey. She also received TB12 brand products from Brady.

Brady saw the video of Plum’s reaction to the package and responded with a dedication on Twitter.

Plum is a self-proclaimed Brady fan, and she made an impression on him when they met on May 31. Brady sat on the court for the Aces’ game against the Connecticut Sun, and Plum knew she had to make their interaction memorable.

“They were like… he’s sitting in the Gucci row [courtside seats at the Michelob ULTRA Arena]. And I was like, ‘say less,'” Plum said during the post-match press conference.

So when Plum came out of the tunnel for the second half, she waved at Brady, then barked at him, citing his spunky attitude and competitive edge.

“I wowed him, gave him a big hug. I was like man, you’re a dog, I love you, ‘woof woof!’ He looked at me and he said ‘yes’ so we connected,” Plum said of Brady’s reaction to the gesture.

Plum’s play this year culminated in her first All-Star nod, where she earned MVP honors after dropping 30 points. He tied former Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore for most in an all-star game in WNBA history.
