Did Enes Kanter just leak a new Celtics jersey?
By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com
Celtics center Enes Kanter’s Instagram may have given everybody a sneak peek at the Celtics’ new “City” edition jerseys.
Posting to his story on Monday, Kanter displayed a Boston jersey that looks legitimate in every way possible, from the GE advertisement to the “17X” and “NBA” logos featured on the back. But it’s a jersey that the Celtics have yet to unveil in any way, shape, or form, with the “Boston” and numbers taking on a definitively more Celtic (in the literal sense) font.
There was no additional context to Kanter’s post, of course, letting our minds run wild.
But it would be a slight deviation from the “City” edition jerseys the club wore during Kyrie Irving’s run in Boston. Those also featured gold accents, added as a tribute to the Larry Bird era warmup sweaters. This was not the team’s first dive into incorporating gold in their on-court jerseys, though, as the team first introduced a St. Patrick’s Day jersey in 2006.
In or out in these truly Celtic jerseys?
