K.C. JONES, TOMMY HEINSOHN, JOHN HAVLICEK AND…WILLIAM FELTON RUSSELL
God forbid, we should forget the other three living Boston Celtic legends of that glorious era — Bob Cousy, Sam Jones and Tom Sanders.
Four in all.
Russ (86), Cooz (92), Sudden Sam (87) and Satch (82).
Apologies to ‘Buckshot’ Bailey Howell, ‘Nellie’ (Don Nelson), Wayne ‘The Wall’ Embry, Emmette ‘Em’ Bryant, the indomitable Mel Counts (traded for Howell), Jim Barnett, Tiny Archibald and Dave Cowens…all, similarly, up and taking nourishment, so to speak.
