Brad Stevens Names Celtics’ Funniest Player And It’s ‘Not Even Close’

Vincent Poirier has made an impact on the Boston Celtics during his first year, and it’s gained the attention of head coach Brad Stevens.

But his biggest impact may have come off the court.

Prior to his team hosting the Chicago Bulls at TD Garden on Monday night, Stevens at morning shootaround referred to Poirier as the funniest player on the Celtics, per team reporter Marc D’Amico.

A first-year Celtic, the 26-year-old center is averaging just shy of five minutes per game in nine games played this season.  He’s tallied 1.7 points and 1.7 rebounds per game in those nine games.

When Poirier was told about the praise from Stevens, he also was asked who he thought was his least funny teammate — and he came out swinging.

“Can I say Enes (Kanter)?” Poirier said of the fellow center, per NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg.

We’ll just call that friendly fire in the paint.
