It’s hard to decide which Celtic had the best Media Day entrance.
The door frame leading into the press conference room had to be at least a foot and a half too short for Tacko Fall. Jaylen Brown revealed his new haircut in person for the first time. But the unofficial award probably goes to Enes Kanter. He brought the media cookies. Though, he didn’t make them, which he did disclose.
All in all, Kanter probably won "most interesting press conference," too. That shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Here are some of the odd things that came up:
—Marcus Smart explained how Jaylen Brown’s haircut is symbolic of the Celtics focusing on what’s ahead and not what’s behind them.
“I think that lets you know just how fresh a start it is,” Smart said.
Also, when Brown got his haircut, he was also not aware the NBA would be re-measuring players this year.
A friend mentioned to Brown, “You cut your hair and it’s a contract year? What are you doing?”
—Fall once gave himself concussion by not ducking when walking through a door. The bizarre height-related stories never end with him.
—Gordon Hayward has been in the NBA the longest of anyone on the team. He’s entering his 10th year in the league. (Not that odd, but I’m not sure when else this will be mentioned.)
