The Celtics saw a familiar face in the locker room after one of Boston’s Eastern Conference semifinals against the Bucks.
And while former president of basketball operations Danny Ainge may have played a key role in transforming the Celtics into an endgame caliber team, that hasn’t stopped owner Wyc Grousbeck from kicking out Jazz’s new CEO.
Narrative “The Greg Hill Show” Tuesday:
He was so instrumental while he was here. It really pained me to have to threaten to throw him out of the locker room when he suddenly showed up in the Milwaukee series. I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, guests aren’t allowed in this locker room. You represent the Utah Jazz. So it was very fun. We all had a good laugh about it. It really pained me to have to throw him out of the locker room.
The C’s would go on to beat the defending champions before winning a hard-fought seven-game series against the Miami Heat.
With Game 1 on the West Coast on Thursday, Ainge also shouldn’t expect locker room access for the Celtics in the NBA Finals.
