Celtics Fans Greet Kobe With Cheers; Boo During Game

(Kobe) Bryant hadn’t been sure what he would be hearing from the fans during his final visit to Boston, where he had split the NBA Finals of 2008 and ’10. He waved in gratitude before the game when he heard his name being introduced to cheers.

“It’s just a surreal feeling,” he said. “I wish I could do more to show my gratitude to them. And I just tried to say thank you as much as I possibly could. It’s a weird feeling, walking across the center court, looking down at that logo, just trying to cherish it as much as possible.”

But then another point of view emerged. As soon as the ball found its way to Bryant, the booing started. It followed him like a stubborn defender — like a ghost of the former Celtic Tony Allen — everywhere he went.
