Tommy Heinsohn makes his mark in first preseason game

October 02, 2017 - 9:09 pm

Tommy Heinsohn was his usual sharp self from the get-go duing the broadcast of the Celtics' first preseason game against Charlotte.

And, as usual, the 83-year-old offered his own brand of entertainment along the way, as was evident in Heinsohn commenting on Boston's new 6-foot-10 center, New Zealand native Aron Baynes.

Besides being 6-foot-10 and upwards of his listed 260 pounds, Baynes did impress in his debut, hitting four of his first six shots. He played in 75 games last season for Detroit, averaging 4.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in 15 minutes per game.
