Bob Cousy Warmup Shirt
Date: 1950s to 1960s
Over his successful Celtics career, Bob Cousy warmed up in 917 games and recorded 6,945 assists – which remains in the top 25 all-time in NBA history. Sportswriter Leonard Koppett said of Cousy, “Fans were attracted to Cousy because he was an ordinary-sized person competing against all these giants, and a lot of the time he made them look silly.” One of his game-worn warmup jackets is proudly displayed at TD Garden today.
