Marcus Smart says goodbye to Boston and Celtics fans

Marcus Smart took to Twitter yesterday to say goodbye to the fans of the Boston Celtics, a fanbase who #36 gave his all to over the past nine seasons.
Where do I even I start to think about the last 9 years I have a lot of emotions running thru me. I came to Boston as a naive kid from Dallas not really knowing what to expect. All I knew was the type of work ethic my momma instilled in me and I was going to work my ass off and make sure I EARNED the respect of each and every one of the fans in Boston. Which is why this was tuff. Boston, you are a very special place to me. I grew up here and met some of my best friends here. I'll never forget my time here. Ultimately we didn't get that 18th banner but I'm VERY VERY proud of the success we had. I'm going to miss so many things about Boston but mainly my teammates, fans, and kids and our hospital charity work.

It was a great 9 years Boston, thank you for all the love….but now it's time to look forward.

I can't wait to get to Memphis and get started. We have something special brewing here! Am blessed to be a part of Grizzly nation. Let's get to work. 💪🏾
