Hey, did you know that the Boston Celtics’ matchup this evening against the Washington Wizards at TD Garden marks the first time in franchise history that Boston hosts a home game?

A legenary team never having a home day on Christmas?


Yep, according to CBS Local Sport Sports Boston, all of Boston’s other Christmas Day appearances were either on the road or at neutral sites.  The Celtics are 14-16 in their Christmas Day.

Speaking of Boston, Michael Bivins is from Boston. A founding member of both legendary groups, New Edition and Bel Biv and Devoe, he’s been part of historic songs like Candy Girl, Poison, Under The Blue Moon and Heartbreak.

But check this out, in a chat with with Bivins, he told me that he once felt like a member of the Boston Celtics when he got the ultimate Christmas gift: a retractable basketball hoop that he had in his bedroom.

“You cold not tell me that was not a member of the Boston Celtics in my projects bedroom,” Michael Bivins told me.
