James Young Does Carlton Dance at Celtics Shamrock Gala


The Boston Celtics held their annual Shamrock Gala Thursday night at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel to raise money for the team’s Shamrock Foundation. Per usual, the entire Celtics roster and coaching staff was on hand for the fundraiser, and helped to provide some entertainment during the evening.

In past seasons, gala attendees have enjoyed a dance off between Delonte West and Glen Davis as well as fairly entertaining impression of Ray Allen by Eddie House.

This year, Celtics rookie James Young got into the act by performing the world-famous Carlton dance while teammates Kelly Olynyk, Phil Pressey and Dwight Powell sung the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. Instagram user Arielle Heinemann posted video of Young’s moves from the performance. (h/t: KWAPT)
