Jack Harlow praised Jayson Tatum and other Boston Celtics when he had them on stage during his concert.
The award-winning hip-hop artist brought out players from his favorite team to shoot some free throws on stage while he performed. What a feeling.
Harlow, a seven-time Grammy nominee, let the world know about his Celtics fandom in the past. He's been a fan of the team ever since they acquired Kevin Garnett back in 2007. So this was a special occasion for him.
Harlow brought out Jayson Tatum first, and then called Blake Griffin and Payton Pritchard to the stage. Grant Williams was also in attendance at TD Garden.
Harlow said to the crowd as Tatum was shooting a free throw:
“This is way deeper than the playoffs.”
Harlow praised the three as they left the stage:
“Listen, please give it up for these three legends right here”
Griffin signed a one-year deal with the Celtics on September 30. Pritchard was selected 26th overall by the Celtics in the 2020 NBA Draft. He's heading into his third season with the team. Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart are the only teammates left from his rookie season.
Tatum has been the face of the franchise since 2017. The three-time All-Star has averaged 20.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists in five seasons with the Celtics.
