After the Boston Celtics’ thrilling win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, star forward Jayson Tatum made sure to link up with Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith following the game.

Smith, who has supported the Celtics on social media in the past, received Tatum’s game-worn jersey after he drilled the game-winning basket as time expired.

Although the two represent opposing cities, both share a common respect for one another for the elite work they do in their respective sports.
