Hondo was as important to the Celtics dynasty as Bill Russell and Red Auerbach were. Havlicek was a part of eight Boston titles in his 16-year career. In his third year, Hondo made a legendary steal against Wilt's 76ers in Game 7 of the ECF to seal the win. Before Bill Laimbeer and Danny Ainge came along, John was the only person to score nine points in an OT period of a Finals game; a series in which he was named Finals MVP. He was an all-around player that hung his hat on outlasting his opponents. His legendary stamina allowed him to lead the Celtics to a victory in a triple-OT thriller dubbed "The Greatest Game Ever Played" against the Suns in Game 5 during the 1976 Finals.
