Celtics fans didn’t have much to cheer about during a 108-88 loss to the Golden State Warriors Wednesday night, but a fan in the crowd who looked like deceased rapper Tupac Shakur caused quite a reaction.
I was first alerted to the presence of the Tupac look-alike by the Globe’s Gary Washburn:

Later, a better picture surfaced:

Reporter Jessica Camerato tweeted that it was not the first time this mystery Tupac had appeared at the Garden. With the game out of hand, Camerato and several others reported that the TD Garden crowd even got a chant going.
This is happening: “Let’s go Tupac” chant at the Garden for the Tupac lookalike who frequents Celtics games.
