Celtics.com is featuring today's photo shoot in Waltham today where Pierce, KG, and Ray Allen had a good time mugging for the cameras.
Wearing their kelly green road jerseys together for the first time, the Celtics' three stars looked ready for action as they posed for several different magazine covers, cut a few video promos did the obligatory stop in with NBA Photos in just under 65 minutes on Monday afternoon.
Some poses were serious; a triple-profile against a green background we dubbed the "Mount Rushmore", composed by NBA photographer Nat Butler, looked pretty regal and could one day become a famous shot. Other photos were playful; the guys tried on each others' jerseys for another NBA picture, and in the process Pierce stretched Allen's jersey a little out of shape.
Even at their most enjoyable, photo shoots are often tedious as photographers attempt to bring their visions to life, but the guys were clearly enjoying themselves in each others' company. Training camp is still a few weeks away, but the camaraderie between the Celtics stars is already evident.
This is some exciting stuff. They sure do look good together and the chemistry is evident in their interaction. Hopefully it will tranlslate to the basketball court as well.
