A wonderful, glorious, incredible thing occurred to me tonight. We have an entire new roster for Tommy Heinsohn to get to know. You know what that means right? Mispronounced names and over-the-top player comparisons! (Note that this is all in fun and I have the utmost respect and admiration for Tommy, a true Celtics legend)
So I figured an amusing experiment would be to go to twitter and crowdsource the best future Tommy quotes for the coming year.
Here was my example:
"I'm telling you, this kid Oojalayy reminds me of a young KC Jones." - #futuretommyquotes— CelticsBlog (@celticsblog) September 13, 2017
