John Havlicek spent his entire 16-year NBA career with the Boston Celtics. He was a member of 8 World Championship teams and finished his Hall of Fame career with 26,395 points (20.8 ppg, sixth all-time) in 1,270 games (fourth all-time). "Hondo" popularized the role of the "sixth man" in the NBA, and is still regarded as the best "sixth man" in NBA history. He will forever be remembered for stealing an inbound pass in the 1965 Eastern Conference Finals against Philadelphia that preserved Boston's 110-109 victory. Johnny Most's legendary call, "Havlicek stole the ball", remains a classic description of one of the most memorable moments in NBA history. Havlicek was the first player to score 1,000 or more points in 16 consecutive seasons. He was a member of 13 NBA All-Star teams, and was a member of the NBA's All-Defensive First team five times. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary team in 1996.
