"GO TO COCO" HOW ONE BARBER IN WALTHAM BECAME THE MAN THE CELTICS CALL
MOBAR & The Boston Celtics
Professional Athlete Barbers
The day before the Celtics left for Orlando, Coco Fernandez just knew he was going to hear from Brad Wanamaker. The Waltham barber had only one player appointment officially on his schedule: A session with Kemba Walker. But Fernandez had a feeling Wanamaker — and probably a few others — would call in hopes of booking a last-minute trim prior to departing for the NBA’s “bubble” campus inside Walt Disney World.
Sure enough, after his workout last Tuesday morning, rookie Grant Williams stopped by Fernandez’s shop, Mobar Cuts. Moments later, fellow rookie Carsen Edwards, sporting his Adidas-branded face mask, walked in, too.
