Another Good Person, #0003
John Havlicek combined a one-of-a-kind mixture of athleticism and court sense, but the incredible difference was that he could run all day, all week, all year, if that was what it took to outrun you. In any battle of endurance, the opponent was his.
As this series expands, you will see many Celtics and many pro basketball stars, but the number 1 in my sky is John Havlicek.
Btw, Hondo is being guarded(?) by 1 of the best defensive players ever, Jerry West (left) in the photograph. He has his work cut out for him.
