Jo Jo White (1946-2018) in action for the @celtics! #NBAvault

Jo Jo White was a legend of our game. Two-time NBA champion, Finals MVP and an Olympic gold medalist -- a model of consistent excellence and uncommon poise. He was a Hall of Fame player and an even bigger legend to countless people he inspired and communities he gave back to, especially in his longtime role as the Celtics’ director of special projects. On behalf of the NBA family, I extend my deepest sympathies to Jo Jo’s family and friends and the Celtics organization. - @adamsilvernba

The @nba Family mourns the loss of Keith Jackson, one of the most distinctive, colorful voices in sports broadcasting history. Jackson spent more than 50 years behind the microphone, most of them for ABC. Though best known for his work in college football, he also spent four years calling NBA games with Hall of Famer Bill Russell.
