After each championship win, Boston players head to Disney the Southie Gillette Headquarters for a celebratory shave off.

This year, three Celtics players enjoyed a champion-worthy shave from Boston barbershop chain Title City Barbershop.

During the shave, Derrick White answered questions about chipping his tooth during Game 5 of the finals and shared how he kept his head in the game. Al Horford shared his favorite moments since winning the championship and reflected on how long it had been since he last won a championship title. Payton Pritchard discussed that stunning half court shot and his plans for the summer, including his upcoming wedding in August.

Gillette also gave back to the community, donating $25,000 to three local charities selected by the players: Boys and Girls Club, Best Buddies, and Special Olympics Massachusetts.
