Boston athletes take part in social media buzz surrounding Al Horford and Kevin Durant recruitment

Boston is indeed a brotherhood of professional athletes. Tom Brady and David Ortiz generated a lot of buzz on social media on Saturday for their efforts in recruiting Kevin Durant to join the Celtics, but they weren't the only ones.

Many current Celtics players (as well as Terrance Knighton of the New England Patriots) jumped on their Instagram and Twitter accounts to partake in the excitement surrounding NBA free agency.

Below is a collection of some of the top images and tweets from this weekend's efforts to bring Al Horford and Durant to Boston.
