Dennis "DJ" Johnson DEAD At 52...Celtic Great...

Larry Bird today said that DJ was the best basketball player he ever played with. Sadly, at 52 years of age, Dennis Johnson is dead. Everyone who ever loved or loves the green team is suddenly saddened. He collapsed in a practice game today, and his loss is ours. WE MISS YOU DENNIS. Rest in peace. Too young to go, and wow, did you shine in the 1980's....McHale, Bird, Ainge, Parish and...and.....DJ. We are diminished without you, and I am reduced to tears. Above everything, you were a GOOD person.
You will always be a World Champion, forever. And I mourn.
