The Boston Celtics and the NBA continue to honor the late Terrence Clarke — this time, with a brand new basketball gym at a community center featuring his name.
The newly renovated gym will be at the Boston Centers for Youth & Families Vine Street … which is where Clarke grew up playing basketball.
It’s an amazing tribute … featuring the former Kentucky guard’s initials and #5 jersey in a blue heart at center court and an honorary banner.
It also has a quote from Clarke on the sideline — saying, ”I want to be that guy for everyone in the city.”

The NBA paid tribute to Clarke by making him an honorary pick at the Barclays Center during the draft … with commissioner Adam Silver saying, “His extraordinary talent, commitment and dedication to the game deserved to be recognized on this stage.”
