Former Celtic Walter McCarty Meets Young Fans

SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — We had football and hockey stars in town today… add another sport to that list: basketball!

Former Celtics forward Walter McCarty took part in a meet and greet at the basketball hall of fame to talk about his ten year career in the NBA and to answer any questions the kids might have about basketball… or even his shoe size.

“A lot of kids come in here and for them to see an ex-basketball player could mean the world to them, to see someone my size or someone who wears a size sixteen shoe,” said McCarty.

Fans of all sizes got to meet and take pictures with the star after hearing from him talk about playing basketball in the NBA.
