The New Kids on the Block might be on break after their successful summer Mixtape Tour, but founding member Donnie Wahlberg has been busy filming season 10 of ‘Blue Bloods’ in NYC.

Donnie who portrays Detective Danny Reagan on the CBS drama is a big basketball fan. While he is usually receiving all the admiration from the Blockheads (NKOTB fans), it was his time to do some fangirling when he bumped into Celtics professional Enes Kanter.

Wahlberg who is very active on social media posted this photo of he and Kanter with the caption, “Got him on the Celtics, now we gotta get him on Blue Bloods.”

This isn’t the first time Donnie has shown his love for the Celtics. Last April, he posted a selfie with fellow NKOTB member Danny Wood at a Celtics game with the caption, “When we are back here with @nkotb in two weeks on the #MixTapeTour — we’re all Hoosier. But tonight — we are all @celtics! #CUsRise ☘️.

If you were lucky enough to catch a show on the Mixtape Tour, then you didn’t only get the pleasure of watching the New Kids on the Block perform but you also saw Naughty By Nature, Salt-N-Pepa, Debbie Gibson, and Tiffany in the mix!

Wahlberg took in a game with member of Naughty by Nature before the tour started in last December 2018. “Doing a little courtside recon at @tdgarden with @kaygeenbn for #MixTapeTour!! Gonna get crazy in 2019!!! And yes — he is rooting for the @celtics!!
