Kelly Oubre, Jr. knew he would hear it from Boston Celtics fans on Wednesday night, as he described in an interview with CSN. He expected the boos and that's exactly what he got.
Oubre checked in to begin the second quarter of Game 5, but Boston fans let him have it before he even entered the game. There were 'we want Oubre' chants and then once he actually got in they chanted his name over and over.
Here are some videos of the chants:

Oubre said the boos would make him feel "alive," but that has to be a weird feeling.
