Jo Jo White R.I.P.

I was never a big Celtics fan but always admired their team greatly.

Jo Jo White, who died the other day, was a favorite of mine.

White was a perennial all star and his Celtic teams won four championships. He also won a Gold Medal in the 68 Olympics.

Along with Cowens and Havlicek, the team had a lot of moxie and grit.

I was a Knick and Laker fan back then. There were far fewer teams and the talent level was sky high, the competition fierce.

Unseld, Reed, Chamberlain, Lanier, Jabbar, Oscar, it was a glorious time for team basketball.

You're right about Jerry, Elgin had retired by that time. He was more in the time of the Jones boys.
