Vintage Tsioropoulos Jacket
While the Celtics signed Lou Tsioropoulos in 1953, military service prevented him from joining the team until the 1956-57 season – the same season Boston won its first NBA World Championship title. The native of Lynn, Massachusetts, averaged 5.8 points and 4.8 rebounds per game before a recurring knee injury from his college days ended his Celtics career after only three seasons. Tsioropoulos wore this warmup jacket during his time in Boston.
