Clint Eastwood Meets the Celtics
Date: ca. 1959 to 1963
Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn and Frank Ramsey stood in front of CBS Studios in Los Angeles with Clint Eastwood, who was holding a volleyball (wrong sport, Clint). Despite being 6-foot-2, Eastwood never set foot on a basketball court but did play golf and tennis growing up. Then a star of the TV series “Rawhide,” Eastwood would eventually become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Despite this interaction with three Celtics Hall-of-Famers, “Dirty Harry” was ultimately a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers.
