Poor Rick Fox. Respect is hard to come by for him, even when he’s guest-starring on a sitcom.

The former Boston Celtics player drops in on CBS’s comedy “The McCarthys”  this week for a special appearance this week.

In the episode, Sean (Jimmy Dunn) secures Fox as a surprise birthday present for his brother Gerard (Joey McIntyre). As Fox hides in the closet, Sean asks Gerard who his favorite Celtics player is — leading Gerard to rattle off a list of seemingly every player ever, before he finally lands on the correct answer.

“The McCarthys” airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. Watch a sneak peek of his guest appearance.
