Every wondered what Avery Bradley wore for Halloween when he was a child? Me neither. I spend a hundred hours or so per week thinking about the Celtics, but I’ve never once thought about what they used to wear for Halloween. I normally care whether they box out, what their shooting percentages are, how they lock down an opponent, or whether their court vision allows them to find open teammates.
But then I read a story about the Celtics old Halloween habits, and it was hilarious. Did you know that Ray Allen used to egg houses? Or that Avery Bradley stopped trick-or-treating in 8th grade, which happened to be just six years ago? Or that everyone thought Shaq was an adult when he trick-or-treated, so he hung up his Halloween costumes for good at the age of 10? Or that Glen Davis might be Kazam this year?
You should read Jimmy Toscano’s Halloween piece, written for CelticsBlog. It’s great.
And about Ray Allen egging houses? I was a lot like Ray. But I’m also the only person in history who ever got caught egging a house. True story. The most embarrassing moment of my life.
