Hamilton Boys’ High School perform haka at Boston Celtics game

A team of Hamilton Boys’ High School basketball players has had the thrill of their lives. 

The junior premier team on a stopover in Boston, as part of a five-game tour in Vermont, found themselves rubbing shoulders with some basketball stars. 

The group was always scheduled to watch the Celtics NBA side clash with Cleveland but as parent Howard Dobson said they were in nosebleed seats.

“However, the day before one of the student’s grandparents upgraded the boys to nearly courtside seats.” 

After the match the schoolboys were invited down to centre court to meet some of the players and they performed an impromptu haka lead by captain Daniel Dobson. 

“I am one very proud parent, it was only a couple of weeks ago I found out he knew the haka and now he leads it.”

There is a Kiwi connection in the Celtics – with Gisborne born Aron Baynes in the team – although he does play internationally for Australia. 

The teenagers have now moved onto Vermont where they are staying with one of the student’s grandparents. 

“After a five-hour trip, they’ve arrived in the snow. It’s the first time some of them have seen snow.”
