BOSTON LANDING — The unfortunate news of John Havlicek’s” passing, rocked the Celtics’ community and the NBA world. In honor of the Boston sports legend, CLNS Media wanted to share with you two short retrospectives on the legendary John Havlicek.
Our first retrospective is the full version of Hondo’s farewell speech during his last game as a member of the Celtics.
Next, we give you a glance at a very rare moment in NBA history. Following the iconic “Havlicek stole the ball” game, the Celtics (again) advanced to the NBA Finals, eliminating Wilt Chamberlain (also, again).
During the NBA Finals, newly retired Bob Cousy, now an ABC Sports Broadcaster, met up with Chamberlain. The “Houdini of the Hardwood,” asked the “Stilt” for his reactions to what would be that greatest call in NBA history (how is Johnny Most not in the basketball HOF?).
