Tommy Heinsohn Rumors

Tommy Heinsohn took a special liking to Marcus Smart when the 20-year-old Texas native first arrived in Boston in the fall of 2014. The legendary Celtics player/coach/broadcaster loved Smart’s grit and hustle, and he saw in the young guard the same selfless pride that he himself had possessed for more than half of a century: Celtics Pride. It was only fitting that Smart – the heart and soul of the current Celtics roster – would win the inaugural “Tommy Award” as a part of Tommy Heinsohn Day at TD Garden.
