New Boston Celtics big men Al Horford and Moses Brown have chosen their jersey numbers for the 2020-21 NBA season per Celtics journalist emeritus Steve Bulpett — formerly of the Boston Herald.

Last worn by Brad Wanamaker and perhaps most famously by Rajan Rondo, Boston’s newest big man will up his own stamp on the jersey.
