Around the Realm: RIP Tommy Heinsohn

We say goodbye to a legend, plus a minor CBA update.

Welcome to Around the Realm, where we look at the top news stories from around the league. If I missed any notable stories, feel free to discuss in the comments!

RIP Tommy

Tommy Heinsohn, an NBA legend both on and off the court, died at the age of 86.

Heinsohn was part of the great Celtics teams of the Bill Russell era, and later became widely known as the color commentator for Celtics games. He was brash and crude and inappropriate and hilarious, and Celtics games on League Pass won't be the same without him.

On Twitter I shared one of my favorite Tommy anecdotes, as shared by John Havlicek in the book Basketball: A Love Story (truly a must-read book for any diehard NBA junkie).

RIP to a legend.

And now for a CBA update

The NBA's Board of Governors unanimously voted to approve the amended CBA that was agreed upon late Monday night.

Basketball's coming. Hide your heart, girl.

Well, I think it’s safe to say that Tommy will be giving heaven a Tommy Point for being so good to the Celtics over the years.
