Meet Mr. Basketball
Bob Cousy had one of the most decorated careers of any player in Celtics history, from assist titles to NBA World Championship titles to his selection as the 1957 NBA Most Valuable Player. Only the St. Louis Hawks prevented Cousy from winning seven straight NBA World Championship titles after the Celtics fell in 1958. Here, Cousy lays up a basket during a 1960s game against the rival Hawks.
