Boston Celtics family members don’t always understand one another instinctively.
This became clear Wednesday afternoon when Celtics legend Bill Russell publicly asked Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown the meaning behind his Twitter handle, “@FCHWPO.” Russell, 84, couched his good question inside a joke about his own age.
“What is FCHWPO?” Russell wrote on Twitter. “Remember I’m old, lol,”
Brown, 21, answered Russell’s burning question and threw in a little humor.
Russell certainly wasn’t alone prior to Wednesday in wondering what Brown’s Twitter name was all about. This writer will admit to being in the know-nothing camp.
As is the case in the real world, Russell’s presence makes Twitter a better place.
