This alternate jersey design was met with a fair amount of criticism in comment form, but there were some who were in favor of the new threads. There is clearly an Irish theme, but some were opposed to the colors.
Kanter will be looking to make his mark with the Celtics this season. He signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the team back in July. However, he’s currently dealing with a left knee contusion, which has forced him to miss the last two games. His last outing was in Boston’s season-opening loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, where he scored 12 points, six rebounds and two assists. It’s not clear if he’ll be cleared to play against the Bucks, as he’s listed as day-to-day.
Kanter split the 2018-19 season with the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers, racking up averages of 13.6 points on 55.7 percent shooting from the field (28.4 percent from beyond the arc), 9.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 24.0 minutes per outing.
Wednesday night’s Celtics-Bucks game is scheduled to tip inside TD Garden at 7:30 p.m. ET, with ESPN having live broadcast coverage.
