    It seems like just yesterday to me. How many times did we pretend that we were Havlicek in that old barn. RIP to one of the greatest.

    Wish I could relate. Instead, I grew up pretending I was Kobe or LeBron, rather than Havlicek. I'm not really a Celtics fan, but I've become so intertwined in the Boston culture, that this sure feels like one of my own. And I know some big Celtics fans that are hurting even more. RIP

    I think you can relate. Kind of sounds like we did the same things only in another generation.
