Betts posted the video which shows highlights of his time in Boston as well as highlights of other Boston Sports teams and of Los Angeles sports teams including Kobe Bryant. Betts says the following words in the video:

“Nine years. Man, you were great to me Boston. The way you welcomed me in like family. The bonds that will last a lifetime and the banner that will hang forever. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Over the years I’ve realized we’re all a part of something bigger.. than one person or one city. While the jersey will change, the mindset will not. From one title town to another, Los Angeles, it’s showtime.”
