Happy Birthday John Havlicek

If you’re a basketball fan, chances are you’ve sat at home on a Wednesday night flipping through your sports package and come across an episode of Hardwood Classics airing Game 7 of the 1965 Eastern Conference Finals between the Celtics and the Sixers. Probably one of the most immortalized moments ever in the history of the NBA was Johnny Most’s call of the closing seconds of that game: “Havlicek steals it. Over to Sam Jones. Havlicek stole the ball!! It’s all over! Johnny Havlicek stole the ball!” Today Hondo turns 71 so we thought we’d pay homage to the 13-time All-Star with a dope highlight mix featuring Gang Starr.

What is your favorite announcer call in NBA history?
