Old Memories for New Kid Danny Wood

Before Danny Wood got hooked up with courtside seats by Donnie Wahlberg to watch the Boston Celtics [1] ring ceremony, the New Kids on the Block member took in a world championship from a different view.

‘€œDuring the ring ceremony I was definitely getting chills because I was actually in the building in ’86 when they won number 16,’€ Wood said. ‘€œI was a junior in high school at Copley High and I was in the building when they won. I mean I was way up in the rafters. So for me it’s really special to be here to see them raise that after all these years.’€

Watching the banner get hoisted to the rafters took Wood back to the days of the original Big Three.

‘€œI started thinking about Larry Bird [2] and Kevin McHale [3] and all the guys that last time they won were here,’€ he said. ‘€œAnd then I started thinking like my sons are big Celtics fans so this is their generation for them.’€

The native Bostonian added, ‘€œIt’s just great for the city of Boston, for the organization, for them to be doing this again.’€
