Two giants of the game tied to the same team have passed on this season. RIP DJ. You are with Johnny Most and Red now.

DJ always had my respect. I made a video thing including him with other players ive noticed dont get respect they deserve until they die and people make a big deal out of them for a few days. I sure didnt expect him to go so soon.

One of the smartest players I ever saw.

RIP. Worst season in Celtic history.

Co-sign. Red Auerbach dying, the Celtics awful play, and the front ofifice's ineptness. Just sad all-around.


R.I.P. DJ. Damn you should've been in the Hall of Fame.

DJ and Larry Bird
Larry Bird viewed him as one of his favorite teammates, probably due to Johnson's unselfishness and intelligence on the court. Bird even called Johnson "the best I've ever played with".

The two players connected on a very special occasion. During Game 5 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics were in a difficult position when the opposing Detroit Pistons had a one-point lead and the possession with few seconds remaining to play. However, Bird managed to steal Isiah Thomas's pass to Bill Laimbeer and fed a dashing Johnson, who made a difficult lay-up to give Boston a decisive lead. Boston eventually won the series in seven games.

This is awful. DJ was one of the greatest PGs, but he was so underrated in his career because he played with the Big 3. Just don't forget, he was finals MVP for Seattle and Bird called him the greatest player he's played with.

RIP DJ. YOU ARE THE MAN. MUCH RESPECT.

His part at the end.

One of his little tricks in there. Bird being fronted inthe post so he throws it off the backboard on purpose from the top of the key so it bounces to bird for the score.

He was a bigger part of the Celtics being great in the mid 80s than he often gets credit for.
