We do not know why it happened (rumor has it that it is “Star Wars” night), but we have photo evidence — and from the Boston Celtics themselves. The team’s Twitter account posted a common tweet of several Celtics arriving at the arena for their contest against the Utah Jazz on Friday night, and everything seemed normal.
And then someone showed up to the game wearing a Darth Vader suit. As in, a full one that could pass for the arch-villain himself if we were actually in a galaxy far, far away instead of Salt Lake City, Utah and the Jazz’ home court.
NBA fans were perplexed, impressed, and on the hunt for who it might be — let’s take a look at some of the reactions.
