Boston Celtics fans are excited for the arrival of Kemba Walker, and it appears the players are as well.
The Celtics, via a sign-and-trade with the Charlotte Hornets, brought in Walker to replace Kyrie Irving, who became a much-disliked figure by the time his tenure in Boston ended.
While the Celtics have a new look, there are a few holdovers from last season’s squad. Among them is Gordon Hayward, who welcomed Walker to Boston on Thursday afternoon with a post on Instagram and Twitter.
You can check out the post here, which has a caption that reads, “#TBT Teammates. Excited to get to work @_kw15! #WelcomeToBoston.”
The Celtics are hoping a culture change will lead to more success after a second-round playoff exit last season. How that will work out remains to be seen, but there is plenty of excitement around the team as it stands.
