Watching Jojo play in the early 70`s peaked my lifelong interest in basketball and the Celtics. He exemplified all that was good about sports, honor, and hard work. It seems it was a life well lived.

Jo Jo White you gave me so much joy watching you play for the Boston Celtics. You are and always will my favorite Celtics of All Time. Watching run the floor with those low top sneakers always caught my eye. Best game for me was the against the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. In those over time games you left it all on the floor. RIP my Friends #10 will never be worn by other Celtic but you.
I want to thank you family for allowing us the fans to share you in your NBA Career. God bless...
