Celtics host Make-A-Wish for fun-filled afternoon
Five kids from across the country visited the Boston Celtics at practice in Waltham last week. They were chaffered to the gym by limousine and got to tour the facilities, meet the coach, talk with the trainer, play some ball and meet their favorite players! As if that wasn't enough, they also got autographs, souvenirs and pictures with the championship trophy! It was the perfect ending to a Celtics extravaganza made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts. These were some happy fans!
Recognize his ring? They got to try that on, too!
Celtics head coach Doc Rivers invited the kids into his office for the grand tour.
Shooting around with real game balls.
Love this picture!
Brian Scalabrine stopped in for a quick game!
Don't think he let the kids win either...
You guys look alike!
Special thanks to Matt Meyersohn at the Boston Celtics for all of the hospitality.
Almost as tall as Tony Allen!
Paul Pierce stopped by.
Everyone loved his tattoo!
Probably not your size!
The trophy was wheeled out in a covered bag - nobody could guess what it was!
Kevin Garnett had to slouch for the family photo - he is 6"11!
This one's a keeper.
The kids at the end of the day.
It was a pleasure to watch these kids have such a great time meeting their idols.
