Jack Healey Commentary April 26th, 2019

I was watching the Red Sox and the Bruins last night and I happened to be watching the Red Sox when I heard the news. It was also mentioned on the NBC national broadcast of the Bruins game. John Havlicek died yesterday at the age of 79. Another hero of my youth is gone. What a player too! He was a Hall of Famer, but still so underrated! He won eight World Championships with the Celtics, Only Bill Russell with 11 and Sam Jones with 10 had more. Havlicek would’ve won nine, but the Celtics lost to the Knicks in 1973 when he had to play with one arm. I was listening on the radio when “Havlicek Stole The Ball!” Hey they made that into an album. He was a winner! Of course his #17 hangs in the rafters at the Garden! So many memories. How about game 7 of the 1974 NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks? How about game 5 of the 1976 NBA Finals against Phoenix? The list goes on and and on.
The “Bouncing Buckeye from Ohio State”. May he “Rest In Peace.”
