The Celtics honored the New England Patriots and their Super Bowl victory last night

In their first game home since the Super Bowl the Boston Celtics honored their local football brethren and their most recent world championship as a video tribute to the New England Patriots played during last nights win over the Philadelphia 76ers:

How about that reception for Bob Kraft!?! He's easily Boston's most beloved team owner (sorry Wyc, but if it's any consolation you're definitely the second favorite). Kind of a small turnout for Patriots if the only guys in attendance were Kraft and Patrick Chung, but I'd imagine a week removed from their season most of the guys are off on vacation or back in their hometowns. I was really shocked not to see our boy LeGarrette Blount in the house. The last time the Celtics honored a Pat's Super Bowl just a couple of years ago it was on the same day as the duck boat victory parade through Boston and I remember the Garden was loaded with Patriots players and coaches.

Someone came up with the ultimate troll next time the Atlanta Hawks are in town:

Love it. My only question is do we roll it out during next regular season matchup with them in couple of weeks or do we save it for a possible playoff matchup?
