Talking hoops and the Celtics season to come with Maura Healey


It isn’t very often that a candidate for a major political office in the United States is also a huge fan of the sport of basketball, to say nothing of the Boston Celtics. It’s even less common that they are scholars of the game’s history. And it’s nearly unheard of one being all that and a former pro in the sport.

But that would be an excellent way to describe the current Democratic candidate for Governor in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Maura Healey. Currently the state’s Attorney General since 2014, Healey has previously been co-captain of the Harvard Crimson women’s basketball team and played overseas in Austria for UBBC Wustenrot Salzburg.

Healey has thrown her hat in the ring for the Governorship, but she doesn’t just stick to politics; a serious fan of the Celtics and the sport in general, she spent her years as a player donning No. 14 in honor of Celtics legend Bob Cousy, and her time playing the sport inflects her work as a politician today.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast got a chance to sit down with her to talk about the Celtics of today and our past, the sport more broadly.

At the end of the pod (so you can drop out if that’s not your thing), we talk about her plans and tasks ahead if she wins the race to be 73rd Governor of Massachusetts.
