Damon Blust, the man who played mascot Lucky the Leprechaun, has parted ways with the Celtics.
While a source told the Globe's Marc Spears that both sides agreed on a mutual resignation, the Celtics indicated they were ready to part ways.
One source said Blust missed some team appearances and didn't see eye to eye with his boss on several issues. There is no legal or personal problem outside of the arena that led to Blust's departure.
The Celtics released the following statement this afternoon:
Damon Blust who played the role of "Lucky" the Celtics mascot is no longer employed by the team. We appreciate his many efforts in entertaining Celtics fans as well as his work in the community while a member of the Celtics organization.
