DJ 1954-2007

Dennis Johnson, "DJ", a cornerstone of the last Boston Celtics dynasty, died suddenly yesterday at age 52.

Forever remembered for the famous layup after Bird stole the ball in 1987, DJ won three championship rings, was MVP of the NBA Finals, five time NBA All-Star, and was a tenacious defender.

ESPN's Bill Simmon's paean to DJ is here.
