Michael Carter-Williams, the Hamilton native who is one of the top rookies this season in the NBA, will play his first game as a pro in the TD Garden on Wednesday night.
Carter-Williams, as with most basketball players on the North Shore and New England, grew up as a Celtics fan.
He decided to leave Syracuse University after his sophomore year and was drafted No. 11 in last June's NBA draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. He quickly became a team leader on the court for a team that is "rebuilding."
Wednesday night's game from Boston starts at 7:30 p.m. and airs on Comcast Sportsnet.
