With the hapless Celtics getting crushed by the Golden State Warriors, perhaps the most memorable takeaway from Wednesday’s game at Boston Garden was that a man bearing a strong resemblance to Tupac Shakur was in the building.

“Fake Tupac,” as he has become known, looks a lot like the late rapper. At Wednesday’s game the impersonator donned one of Tupac’s trademark bandanas and wore a goatee similar to the one the rapper had. The Tupac lookalike created quite a stir on social media.
