    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.

    Larry Bird said previously that he was the best teammate that he ever had.

    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:

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/02232007...ter_vecsey.htm

    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.' "
