At the Celtics Draft Party in 1997, Rick Pitino got a warm welcome from the Celtics fans.

Gary Tanguay, Michael Holley and Cedric Maxwell were taken back by the ovation.

"Look at this. Look at the crowd," said Holley. "Look at the adoring fans."

Cedric Maxwell foreshadows things to come for the former Celtics coach.

"Right now. It won't last," said Maxwell. "This is not Kentucky."
