Tommy Heinsohn one of the greatest Celtics, it was a joy to have you in our longue room in Australia as a broadcaster all these years. Part of the fabric of the Celtics, a great basketball mind lost to the world. RIP Tommy

He is the epitome of a Celtic for me. A legend in every single position he ever held with the organization and the community.
As a kid growing up watching literally every Celtics game, he was the voice and face I heard and saw alongside Mike of course. He has undoubtedly had a major impact on my fandom of this team and I’ll always hold him in such high regard and miss him dearly.

I always loved it when he would say “I love Walter” for Walter McCarthy but I took it personally. I loved Tommy, RIP

A very sad day. Tommy was a Celtic through and through. His contributions to the organization as a player, coach and color commentator spanned over 60 years. I had the privilege of meeting him after the Celtics won the 1974 NBA championship. He was larger than life and always will be. RIP Tommy. We won’t see another like you.

RIP Tommy Heinsohn – a legend and the unofficial face of the Boston Celtics. Tommy was a great player in the 60s however his legendary status was achieved as the beloved sports commentator that he was since I first can remember. I grew up a fan of all Boston sports, but basketball was always #1. Tommy’s catch phrases such as, “I love Walter!”, and his love for banter (does anyone even know who the red headed kid from Needham even is???) blended into everyday conversations with friends and family. When I think of the Celtics, I think of Tommy. A true legend, RIP.

A true legend of the game both as a coach and player!! I will always have so much love for this man as one of the most passionate Celtics fans as a commentator which I have always been as a fan myself!
Shine bright up there, Tommy Heinson.

Oh so sad! Tommy was a gifted artist. I had the pleasure of painting with him in David Cutis’ class a number of times. I remember having lunch at The Studio in East Gloucester with Tommy at the head of the table telling stories of him drawing during his player days and sharing adventures of his storied life. He was a gentle giant of incredible talent and compassion. Very sad news!
