Dennis Johnson

February 23, 2007

No cards today. Below is a link to a clip of one of the two or three happiest moments of my sports-watching life, and it would have been a non-event if Dennis Johnson hadn’t known exactly what to do:


My favorite part whenever rewatching this clip over the years has been the look of unadulterated happiness on Bill Walton’s face. That and Johnny Most’s call, of course. But this time I most enjoyed the part when Bird and the man he called the best player he ever played with come together after the play: We’re nowhere without each other.

Rest in peace, DJ.
