As he was preparing for the NBA Draft, former DeMatha star Markelle Fultz went back to school only to find a piece of Celtics history on campus.
Given the Celtics have the No. 1 pick, and Fultz being the likely the No. 1 pick, being back at DeMatha on the same day that the Mercedes of legendary Celtics coach Red Auerbach was there seemed like fate.
And why was Red Auerbach's Mercedes at DeMatha, you ask? Well, when Red Auerbach passed, he left his Mercedes to his nephew Ric MacPherson (DeMatha class of 1965). Ric was close with Red and he just happened to be at DeMatha with the car when Markelle visited on Friday.
I bet Markelle Fultz wishes he could "BCELTIC," but that might not be the case.
Unfortunately, reports surfaced later Friday afternoon from Zach Lowe and Marc Stein of ESPN that say Boston is now in serious talks to trade the No. 1 pick to the Sixers. The talks have elevated to the point that Fultz is now planning for life not in Boston
Philly-Boston deal isn't done, but all kinds of momentum & enough to have Markelle Fultz planning to meet with Sixers when/if they agree.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) June 16, 2017
So, Fultz may not get to play for the Celtics, but at least he got to have a photoshoot with the car of a Celtics legend.
