Kemba Walker discussed his decision to join the Boston Celtics at Media Day today. After watching the 1:10 minute clip my ears perked up when I heard "Boston is perfect." I mean, I know this as a guy who has grown up around Boston my whole life, but I love hearing athletes of the local teams buying into the city.
