Enes Kanter kept the receipts.

The Celtics completed a first-round playoff sweep of the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, about a year and a month after Kanter and point guard Kemba Walker signed with Boston in free agency.

If you'll recall, some weren't keen on the C's adding Walker and Kanter last summer after they let Kyrie Irving and Al Horford walk in free agency and failed to sign superstar Anthony Davis.

FOX Sports' Nick Wright was among Boston's harshest detractors, calling the Walker and Kanter signings a "disaster" last July.

Fast forward to Monday morning, when Kanter decided to take a victory lap after dispatching Horford's Sixers.

People don't forget -- especially if it's Kanter and Wright is involved.

The veteran big man actually called Wright out on the day of his original take and recently chided FS1's hot air dispenser for picking the Milwaukee Bucks to advance to the 2020 NBA Finals.

The Celtics indeed have exceeded the expectations of those who thought they'd take a step back after losing Irving, Horford, Terry Rozier, Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes last offseason.

Walker has been the perfect unselfish superstar to complement Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who have improved by leaps and bounds to put the Celtics in the NBA title contender conversation.

 

Kanter shouldn't celebrate too much, though: Boston's second-round matchup with the defending champion Toronto Raptors begins Thursday and should be the Celtics' toughest test yet.
