Tommy Heinsohn made this segment on Aron Baynes incredibly awkward

Uhhhh ...


Tell me Tommy Heinsohn didn’t just say that. Heinsohn was in the middle of calling the Celtics’ preseason game against the Hornets when he began talking about Aron Baynes. This is Baynes’ first season with Boston, so it only makes sense that he introduced the fans at home to the team’s new big man.

Only, he might have gone too waaaay far in that introduction. I don’t think anyone was ready for Heinsohn on Baynes:

“I took a look at Baynes in the shower. He looks like all of Australia. He is really put together.”

What does looking like all of Australia even mean? That gets even more confusing when you realize that Baynes isn’t even from Australia. He’s from New Zealand. Why was Heinsohn looking at Baynes in the shower anyway? This might require some more clarification on Heinsohn’s part.
