one of my favorite Celtics of all time. No one played the game harder from wire to wire.
Cowens played with aggression -- sort of like Marcus Smart as a center (and he could shoot FTs at an 80% clip). What a great ambassador for Celtic Pride. My only issue with this thread is the implication that 67 is old to be shooting FTs.
Those Celtic teams with Havlicek, Cowens & JoJo were so much fun. As others will recall they weren't on TV as much back then so we had Johnny Most on the radio. Still haven't gotten over losing to the Knicks in '73 when Havlieck got hurt!Dave Cowens was on Bob Ryan's Boston Podcast not long ago and it was great. Loved hearing him talk about decking Mike Newlin.Here's a link if anyone wants to check it out: http://bobryanbostonpodcast.libsyn.com/season-3-episode-7-dave-cowens

Yeah, unfortunately channel 4 only picked them up for like Friday night games and weekend games.
