It looks like Boston life is wearing out Aaron Gordon.
The 6-foot-9 NBA draft prospect visited the city this week to attend his sister’s Harvard graduation — a trip that might or might not have also included a workout with the Boston Celtics.
Either way, Gordon clearly had basketball on his mind, as one observer snapped — and uploaded to Reddit — a photo of the Arizona product passed out while riding the Red Line.

That’s some true dedication to your craft.
Gordon is a projected lottery pick — NESN.com’s latest mock draft has him going fifth overall to the Utah Jazz — and the Celtics have been rumored as potential suitors for the 18-year-old. ESPN’s Chad Ford wrote Thursday that Boston is the “best bet” to draft Gordon at No. 6 overall if Danny Ainge chooses not to trade the pick.
If that’s true, Gordon already is ahead of the curve in the pants department.
