Clinton's savvy Kyrie Irving joke shows that he must be following the team. Perhaps he became a Celtics fan when he attended law school at Yale. But either way, his allegiance appears to be with the Celtics.
According to another tweet, Kanter was meeting with the Clintons to discuss human rights violations in Turkey. The Turkish Kanter has openly spoken out against Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
This likely won't be the last time that Kanter meets with political figures during his Celtics career.
