About John Havlicek

John "Hondo" Havlicek is widely considered one of basketball's greatest players, winning eight championships in his 16 seasons with the Boston Celtics. That's close to a record – only two NBA players have more championship wins (and they were Havlicek's Celtics teammates). Drafted by the Celtics in 1962 after playing college ball for Ohio State, Havlicek never played for another team, remaining with the Celtics until his retirement in 1978. He was the team's all-time top scorer, a title he still holds. The Celtics retired his number 17 immediately after his retirement, and he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1984.
