Though the team has an off-day today, the Celtics rookie has chosen rest over the red carpet.
“I just felt like I came here to do things with my team, and taking that trip would have got me off track,” said R.J. “Besides, some of my (Georgia State) teammates are there so we’re represented.
“It was a tough decision, but every time I seem to make a decision based on basketball, basketball seems to take care of me,” he said. “The (Celtics) coaches haven’t said anything to me about it, but I get the sense they agree this was the right thing. I’ve been around the sport for so long, it seems like the natural thing to do.”
Hunter and the Celtics will be back in action tomorrow in Vegas.
