Keyon Dooling explains the Celtics “Flexing” Celebration

“We’ve been doing that throughout the course of the season, it’s just magnified throughout the playoffs,” Dooling said. “It’s something that kind of gets us going. We put two fists in the air and kind of pump our fists a little bit — just something to let our guys know that we are cheering for them, we’re rooting for them. We’ve got their back.”

After Boston’s Game 1 triumph over the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semifinals Saturday night at TD Garden, a reporter suggested that it looked like the players were doing chin-ups, Dooling chuckled.

“Well, if you’ve seen my body, you’d know I haven’t done too many chin-ups,” he deadpanned.
