Is the just-deceased John Havlicek one of the 25 best NBA players ever?

Absolutely. John Havlicek is one of the most underrated players I think. Here are some facts about him:

-stats: 21/6/5 (one of the most well rounded players ever and a point forward before it existed)
-8x champion and 8–0 in the Finals (yes a better record than Jordan!)
-Finals MVP
-13x All star
-11x All-NBA
-8x All-Defensive

-He was the best two way forward before Scottie Pippen and Kawhi Leonard came on the scene.

-He was one of the most clutch players ever. “Havlicek steals the ball!” is one of the most memorable moments in NBA Finals history

-A consummate teammate and team player, never putting his ego above anyone else’s

-part of two completely different Celtics teams.. the Russell driven team of the 60s and the Cowens driven team of the 70s.

-one of the five best white players in NBA history

-one of the top 7 small forwards in NBA history

-one of the three best Celtics ever

-probably the greatest sixth man in NBA history (sorry Manu and McHale)

-He’s the 18th greatest player of all time to me, right behind Durant and ahead of Pettit
