Former Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart looks like he'll be wearing No. 36 for the Boston Celtics.
Smart was picked No. 6 overall in the NBA Draft last week by the storied franchise, and he explained his reason for the number selection.
"3 for the history. 6 for the draft pick #BLEEDGREEN," Smart said via Twitter on Monday.
With the long tradition of winning in Boston, there weren't a ton of premium numbers left over for Smart to choose from. Twenty-one numbers have been retired in Celtics history.
Smart's No. 33 he wore at OSU belongs to Hall of Famer Larry Bird ... so that wasn't really an option.
