NBA legend Bill Walton mingled with Bostonians en route to Game Three of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors Wednesday night.
Walton is videotaped riding the orange line from the MBTA on his way to the game. In the clip, Walton can be seen in a green T-shirt with “NBA Finals” and “Celtics” written on it.
“Celtics, here we go,” the 6-foot-11-inch Walton said as he stepped down to enter the train.
At this point Walton’s eyes widened, and as he clicked on the roof of the train, the former Celtics, Clippers, and Trailblazers center said, “They’ve got all the new wagons, man. They’re not rocking anymore.”
Walton’s ability to notice what are actually new cars on the orange line didn’t go unnoticed by Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, who tweeted in approval:
It wasn’t immediately clear from the video where Walton boarded the train, but his likely destination was the Orange Line station directly below North Station, where TD Garden also sits.
