This week’s Fan Friday features a fan, friend & colleague. Scott, the founder of a great website called “CeltKicks”. Scott is a life-long Celtics fan and also a die-hard sneakerhead, like myself. Scott and I share an affinity for Celtics-themed sneakers, hence the term “celtkicks.”
Scott hails from Plainville, Ma, and lists Paul Pierce as his favorite Celtics player. This season, Scott was able to score courtside seats to watch Paul eclipse Larry Bird and become the 2nd all-time scorer in Boston Celtics’ history. Scott was thrilled to witness this moment in C’s history from down on the floor, and also got to meet Celtic legend JoJo White and Ray Allen’s mom, Flo.
Scott has an extensive collection of Boston Celtics themed kicks; from actual player-worn models, to rare special editions. (like his autographed Dee Brown Reeboks above) His site has gotten props from sneakerheads everywhere and even caught the eye of Nate Robinson when he played for the Celtics. It’s definitely worth a look if you’re a Celtics fan and/or a sneakerhead. As always, thank you for reading, and GO CELTICS!
