The John “Hondo” Havlicek Pro Basketball board game made by Gotham Pressed Steel appeared on the market in 1969. Just like Havlicek, the players in the game could run, shoot and rebound. By 1969, Havlicek was already a four-time NBA All-Star and in the midst of a streak from 1968 to 1971 where he made the NBA All-Defense Second Team every year. Do you remember playing this game as a kid?
