'80s Highlights 

DJ was one hell of a floor general. What he lacked in size, he gained with heart. One of the toughest defenders the game has ever seen, Johnson helped the Celtics win two titles in the '80s. Offensively he did a little bit of everything. He hit the mid-range, was tough around the basket and was as clutch as they come. The baller out of Compton, CA was Boston's wild card during their deep playoff runs, always in the action.
