Eric LeGrand went home from Wednesday's 76ers-Celtics game with some great memories and a new jersey.
LeGrand, a football player for Rutgers who was paralyzed in a 2010 game, attended the game at the Wells Fargo Center as the guest of the 76ers. He was presented a jersey with his No. 52 on it by Sixers director of public relations Michael Preston.
"This is great," LeGrand said during halftime.
He said that he has been a longtime fan of Celtics forward Kevin Garnett, but that he had no rooting interest.
"I'm just enjoying NBA basketball," he said.
He recently signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are guided by LeGrand's former Rutgers coach, Greg Schiano.
