Very sad. He was an outstanding guard for those Larry Bird Celtic teams. He made a big difference for them when he came to the Celtics. RIP DJ.:(

He was lights out before the Celtic years with the Seattle Supersonics. Very sad.

Is it just me, or have the Celtics had more than their share of players and ex-players dying before their time since about 1986?

This is a good article by Vecsey:

Key quote:

"At the end of the game, D.J. was money!" Bird declared.

"He used to tell me, 'I may be a horrible shooter (not exactly; 45 percent over a 14-year career and nearly 80 percent FT), and you may be a better shooter than me against Cleveland in February. But when it comes to games in May or June, I'll outshoot you every time.' "
