Boston Celtics fans are some of the most diehard and enthusiastic in all of sports, so it shouldn’t come as a major shocker that they did their best to convince Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant to consider signing with their team once he hits the free agent market this summer.
With OKC in town to play the C’s tonight, the Boston faithful reigned down on Durant with “Come to Boston” chants while he was at the free throw line, hoping to make him feel loved while in Beantown.
The one-time MVP and four-time NBA scoring champ is set to become the prize of the NBA offseason come July, so EVERY team with money will have its eyes set on him.
As for the Celtics fans who hope their wish could come true, well, Durant did have plenty of complimentary things to say when asked about the franchise during an interview before the game.
I wouldn’t hold my breath, but, who knows, at least KD didn’t just trash the franchise, so there’s hope—however little it might be.
