BRIGHTON – Boston Celtics legend Bob Cousy spoke to the team before their practice at the Auerbach Center on Tuesday afternoon.
When asked about the 90-year-old hall of famer, Terry Rozier said that he had seen some clips of Cousy, and knew that he was a talented ball-handler. The Celtics guard was happy to have the fellow point guard pay the team a visit. “He’s an All-Star, a champion, and he’s still talking about how he could have done more,” said Rozier. “So when you just hear a guy talk like that, just his unselfishness and his love for the game is just crazy. It’s something that could take you a long way.”
Bob Cousy represents what it means to be a Celtic, and Brad Stevens was very appreciative that he would stop by. “Bob spoke to the team for a little bit in our video room. … What he shared was great and I’m just appreciative of him to take that time. … It’s one thing to have those banners hanging above you, but when those guys come in … you just kind of say, ‘man, we have a lot of responsibility for the uniform we’re putting on.’”
