Celtics Fans Cheer Kobe Bryant Before Last Game in Boston
What is this world coming to? Gone are the days when a 20-year veteran would come into a rival’s arena and get batteries thrown at him. Instead, Kobe Bryant’s farewell tour takes him to Boston, considered the Lakers’ greatest rivalry dating back decades, only to have the fans cheer him as he’s announced.

To make things even worse and more friendly, Celtics management chose to give him a piece of the parquet floor from the old Boston Garden as a farewell present.

Doesn’t it kinda look like Danny Ainge wants to reach over and punch him? Just a little? There is no truth to the rumor that this piece of the floor is from the spot where Kobe made his only pass in Boston.
Dear Celtics, Thank you for not drafting Kobe Bryant (96) and Julius Randle (14).

Well, at least some fans are able to put the world back in order for us.
