Boston Celtics: RE/MAX Homecourt
MONSON, Mass. -- Celtics shooting guard Avery Bradley and legend Cedric Maxwell visited the Dill family of Monson Tuesday to unveil the first of three home court makeovers as part of a promotion with RE/MAX of New England. The family was selected after their mother, Stacey, wrote an essay expressing why her children deserved the court after their home and neighborhood was ravaged by the tornadoes that ripped through Western Mass in 2011.
Check out the video above as Bradley and Maxwell celebrate the new court. Later this week, the duo will help unveil home court makeovers in North Andover (the Heim-Richards family) and Lawrence (the Almanzar family). Each stop includes a basketball clinic for 100 local children, including one Tuesday afternoon at Monson High School.
Read on for more on each winning family, courtesy of the Celtics. Each family was chosen from over 100 essays submitted for consideration.
