A man who got a Boston Celtics champions tattoo has gone viral after the team lost the NBA title in the finals.
The east coast basketball team made it to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010, and one fan felt so strongly that his team would win it that he got a tattoo declaring them champions before the final games had even begun.
In March, 18-year-old Jack Bienvenue got a surprisingly large tattoo on his left upper arm that read: “Boston Celtics, NBA, 2022 World Champions.”
He explained to ESPN: “It seemed like we were finally getting the pieces together. We were finally putting the puzzle together, and I thought it seemed like [a title] was destined to happen.”
But, rather unfortunately for Bienvenue, the Celtics were beaten by the favourite, Golden State Warriors, who took the NBA Championship last night for the fourth time in eight years.
