    “John Havlicek is one of the most accomplished players in Boston Celtics history, and the face of many of the franchise’s signature moments. He was a great champion both on the court and in the community, winning 8 NBA championships and an NBA Finals MVP.”

    “Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, he is enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame… His defining traits as a player were his relentless hustle and wholehearted commitment to team over self. He was extraordinarily thoughtful and generous, both on a personal level and for those in need…”

    My late mother loved those Celtics teams. After Russell, "Hondo" Havlicek was her favorite. I have autographs of both in my PC.

    I was lucky to have grown up watching Bird. Hondo would have been my second choice.
