Like most Celtics lovers out there, C’s co-owner Steve Pagliuca was thrilled when he first heard former Charlotte Hornets star Kemba Walker was considering coming to Boston.
How excited was he?
“I almost crashed my car when I heard that,” Pagliuca said with a laugh at a Shamrock Foundation event this week at Canobie Lake Park, per MassLive.com’s Tom Westerholm.
Luckily, Pagliuca managed to avoid a major accident. And now that he’s had a chance to collect his thoughts, the 64-year-old is sharing his excitement with Celtics fans.
“I always like to watch him play unless it was against us,” he said. “He beat us last year single-handedly in the last five minutes, so it?s great to have him on our side.”
We’re just glad this story didn’t have an unfortunate ending.
