It has been a wild offseason for the Boston Celtics. But with the season fast approaching, the Cs introduced the two new faces of their franchise on Friday: Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.
Sitting side by side at the introductory press conference, the two All-Star additions to Boston’s revamped roster fielded questions from the media and spoke about the whirlwind summer that brought them together at TD Garden.
“It’s destiny,” Gordon joked. “We both have March 23 birthdays, so it was bound to happen at some point in time.”
The full press conference above is certainly worth a watch. And it’s easy to see that the two new Celtic stars, who were once USA Basketball teammates, are thrilled to play alongside one another again.
“I’m excited about coming here, moving to Boston, moving my family here. I’m thrilled to get the season going,” Gordon said.
“It’s about to be crazy, G,” Irving replied.
