We take this time to celebrate Tommy Heinsohn’s life and legacy, and to share in the sorrow of his passing with his family, friends, and fans. As long as there are the Boston Celtics, Tommy’s spirit will remain alive.

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).
I love the Havlicek story. pic.twitter.com/9HUfj6GhAT

The NBA's Board of Governors unanimously voted to approve the amended CBA that was agreed upon late Monday night.
Vote passed, per source. https://t.co/a5sqP9jBg7
