Media Day!

I know I usually write about the Celtics later on in the week (Celtics Thursday/Friday) but I really can’t withhold from talking about the most amazing day of the Celtics calendar year: MEDIA DAY!

Media Day 2018 was held yesterday (Monday) afternoon. The Celtics and Brad Stevens took turns chatting with reporters for 3 hours.  Topics ranged from dethroning the Warriors to injury updates. Players gushed and bragged about their teammates, but I really was only looking forward to one thing: THE PICTURES!!! (insert heart eyes here) Not only is it fun to watch the video footage of the players dribbling and ball-handling for a few minutes to get that perfect action-shot, but the final images come out amazing.

Before viewing my gallery of my favorites from the shoot, I’ve compiled the team roster in case you are a new fan still learning names, faces, and numbers:

 

Alphabetical order:

Aron Baynes #46

Jabari Bird #26
