While the Celtics have not announced Kanter’s number for this upcoming season, the 27-year-old former Portland Trail Blazer’s Twitter profile photo shows him in a No. 11 Boston jersey, the same number Kyrie Irving wore. And this weekend, Kanter posted photos on Twitter and Instagram of fans who had altered their Irving jerseys by adding his name.
He called Boston fans “crazy” in his caption and wrote, “This season going to be FUN 💯.”
Kanter also posted a video on Sunday of a player at his basketball camp wearing a Kanter-Irving jersey. He approved of the fit, giving the young fan a high five and telling him, “good job.”
