Celtics Pride on Their Sleeves
No, Bob Cousy wasn’t coming out of retirement, but the Celtics played to their past when they debuted the “Parquet Pride” alternate jersey for the 2014-15 season. The sleeved jersey, the first since the franchise’s first season, featured a parquet pattern on the sides. “Incorporating our franchise’s storied tradition into our alternate home uniform provides a contemporary new look our players and fans will enjoy, while embracing the history that makes the Celtics brand unique,” said Team President Rich Gotham. These uniforms lasted three seasons before being replaced by a traditional grey athletic jersey with full parquet pattern.
