What kind of access does Tommy Heinsohn have?

The first game of a completely overhauled Celtics roster, with all the intrigue of what it will look like didn’t need any additional hype. The TD Garden filled up for a preseason game, which only drew hundreds of fans in some places.

Regardless, Tommy Heinsohn blew up social media with what may be the wildest call of the season. He started a sentence the way you never should.

Daniel Theis encouraged as well, earning himself a definitive look at more minutes. Guerschon Yabusele did not, getting turned around and caught off his footwork often. They played fast, especially for preseason and dominated in the chase for loose balls and offensive rebounds.
