With the way things have been going this season, nobody expected much from the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors as Rajon Rondo and company suffered their seventh-straight loss. However, despite the loss, the Celtics were generating plenty of buzz during the game for an unexpected reason–which would be the Tupac Shakur look-a-like who was watching the game from the stands.
No, the photo above is not a joke as this fan became quite the popular conversation on social media sites during the game on Wednesday as he could easily pass for Tupac Shakur if he were still alive. From the banana on his head to even the facial features, it’s beyond freaky how much of a look-a-like this fan is of the deceased rapper and if there was a celebrity twin contest–there’s no question this fan would win.

As for the game itself, David Lee (18 points and 10 rebounds) and Klay Thompson (18 points) were simply too much for the Celtics to handle as the Warriors went on to win the game 108-88. Everyone knew Boston would be going through a bit of a rebuilding phase this season after parting ways with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett this offseason, but nobody expected things to be this bad.
Sadly, the spotting of this Tupac fan in Boston during Wednesday’s game is one of the top highlights for Celtics fans during the 2013-14 season.
