Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum arrived at the arena for his team's playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in style.

Tatum was wearing some pretty cool Larry Bird-themed shorts. If you look closely at the photo in the tweet below, you can see a picture of Sesame Street's Big Bird character wearing the Celtics legend's No. 33 jersey.

It's always cool to see the current generation of Celtics stars pay tribute to the great players of the team's past.

Tatum has a long, long way to go before he builds a playoff resume as impressive as Bird's, but you can't deny he's off to a good start. The 22-year-old forward scored a playoff career high 32 points with a team-leading 13 rebounds to help carry the Celtics to a Game 1 win in their first round playoff series versus the Sixers.

In fact, Tatum became the youngest Celtics player to tally 30 or more points and 10 or more rebounds in a single playoff game.

NBC Sports Boston has complete coverage of Game 2 between the Celtics and 76ers. The action begins at 5:30 p.m. ET with "Celtics Pregame Live", followed by the game at 6:30 and "Celtics Postgame Live" after the final buzzer.
