Terry Rozier's jersey swap with Celtics' Daniel Theis included an awesome note


Terry Rozier insisted his return to Boston on Sunday was strictly business.

But the ex-Celtics guard still found pleasure in seeing some of his old teammates at TD Garden.

That list included big man Daniel Theis, who was Rozier's teammate for two seasons in Boston before the point guard joined the Charlotte Hornets in the offseason.

After the Celtics' 119-93 rout of the Hornets on Sunday, Rozier and Theis swapped jerseys -- with Rozier adding a hilarious personalized note for his ex-teammate.

Confirmed: Theis is one of Rozier's "fav white boys."

Celtics fans also showed love to Rozier on Sunday, as TD Garden gave the 25-year-old a warm ovation in his first trip to Boston since joining the Hornets.

Rozier's stats -- 17.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.2 assist per game -- suggest he's fitting in quite well in Charlotte. But he's still close with several of his former Celtics teammates after spending four full seasons in Boston.
