The homecoming has arrived. In mere hours, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will make a memorable return to the TD Garden tonight to a rousing ovation from the TD Garden faithful. There will be many tributes on the night from the Celtics undoubtedly, but the big one everyone is talking about is the video tribute.
There will be two tribute videos on the night, one for each of the former Celtic stars (sorry Jason Terry). According to a source, Garnett will receive the first tribute video at a timeout in the first quarter. Then, at a later timeout, Paul Pierce will receive a video tribute. Have your tissues on standby.
Today in the Boston Globe, Baxter Holmes had a great article on how the videos were made by the C’s staff, featuring the work of Steve Gadsden, an incredibly talented guy. Be sure to give the piece a read.
In the meantime, you can take a look back at some of the other tribute videos the Celtics have given players and coaches in recent years.
