Former Celtic great Dennis Johnson, who helped Boston to two NBA titles, has been elected to the Naismith Hall of Fame, according to a source close to the Hall. The announcement will come Monday at 11 a.m. from Indianapolis and Johnson will be amongst those tabbed.
Johnson had been passed up for years but support soared for his election following his sudden death at age 52 from a heart attack. Johnson had his number 3 retired by the Celtics and was considered one of the top guards of his era.
Its about time!
