Sixteen seasons, 26,000 points, 13 All-Star Games, 11 All-NBA selections, and eight championships - John Havlicek was, quite simply, one of the greatest to ever play the game! But it's not the big numbers that he is most remembered for - it was the clutch moments where Hondo really shone. There was his series-clinching steal in Game 7 of the 1965 Eastern Division Finals ("Havlicek stole the ball!!!"); his 40-point performance in Game 7 of the 1968 Eastern Division Finals; and, of course, his game-saving shot at the end of double overtime in the 1976 NBA Finals vs. Phoenix. Bridging the generations between Bob Cousy and Larry Bird, Havlicek will always be remembered as one of the greatest Boston sports heroes of all time.
This amazing poster, a SportsPosterWarehouse.com exclusive, features Havlicek during the second championship era of his career, the mid-1970s, when he was the inspirational veteran who led JoJo White, Paul Silas, Dave Cowens, Don Nelson, and the rest of the team to glory in 1974 and 1976. He is shown displaying the athleticism and stoical concentration that served him well throughout his career, fending off Cleveland Cavaliers forward Campy Russell, 12 years his junior, on his way to another easy layup. From the old-school shoes and uniforms, to the classic NBA action, to the unmistakeable Hondo style, this is the perfect print for the wall of any true fan! Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official NBA Products serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come.
