Markelle Fultz Receives Exciting Celtics Gift Ahead Of NBA Draft


Go crazy, internet. Markelle Fultz now has a Boston Celtics shirt.

Carol Maloney of WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. on Sunday gave the Washington Huskies star a gift, which will have NBA fans buzzing ahead of the 2017 NBA Draft: a green Celtics T-shirt.

Maloney acquired the shirt while at TD Garden covering Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Celtics and Washington Wizards and surprised Fultz with it during his visit to his high school alma mater, DeMatha.

The Celtics reportedly are considering drafting Fultz with the No. 1 overall pick, and he doesn’t sound at all disappointed with the idea of wearing green.

The 18-year-old prospect has spoken to Celtics star Isaiah Thomas about life in Boston and the possibility of playing in the same back court.

But until NBA commissioner Adam Silver announces Fultz as the Celtics’ pick on June 22, Maloney’s gift to the young point guard only qualifies as “jumping the gun,” something the internet loves more than just about anything else.
