A Celtics basketball great
Havlicek entered the NBA in 1962 and played only for Celtics in his 16 seasons in the basketball league, per Basketball Reference. According to ESPN stats, he never scored below an average of 14 points per game. His most productive year was the 1970 to 1971 season, where he scored an average of 28.9 points and 7.5 assists per game.
Aside from having part of eight championships, he had several accolades and achievements. NBA.com noted that the small forward is a 13-time NBA All-Star, a three-time NBA All-Defensive First Team and became an NBA Finals MVP in 1974. Before he said goodbye to the game in 1978, he amassed 26,395 career points.
His former teammate Paul Silas stated that Havlicek was someone they could depend on, when it comes to shooting, SB Nation noted.
"We always leaned on John to take the big shots and make the big plays," Silas said.
However, it did not mean that he hogged the ball as he was also a generous in passing the ball, noted the site. It was also evident in the number of assists he tallied. He just had the heart to take a chance and get the "big shots."
"Sure I want the ball in tight situations. I'm not bothered if I miss. As long as it is the best you could have done, you should not second-guess a shot," Havlicek said, as quoted by SB Nation.
