Tom Heinsohn Biography
Tommy Heinsohn was born August 26, 1934 and is a retired American professional basketball player. He has been associated with the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA) for six decades as a player, coach and broadcaster. He played for the Celtics from 1956 to 1965, and also coached the team from 1969 to 1978. He has been granted Hall of Fame Status for his success as a player. He helped form the NBA players union. He is the only person to have the distinction of being involved in an official team capacity in each of the Celtics' 17 championships, as well as each of their 21 NBA Finals appearances. He is currently the color commentator on the Celtics' television broadcasts on CSN New England.
Heinsohn became the Celtics' head coach beginning in the 196970 season. He led the team to a league best 6814 record during the 197273 season and was named Coach of the Year, although Boston was upset in the playoffs. The next season Heinsohn and the Celtics won the championship, and they claimed another title in 1976. He accumulated a career coaching record of 427263.
On Celtic broadcasts, Heinsohn likes to point out players who display extra hustle to help the team by giving them Tommy Points. One player in each game has exceptional play and hustle highlighted for the Tommy Award. During broadcasts he is known for his sense of humor and indignantly questioning game officials when calls against the Celtics appear to be made in error.
Away from the court, Heinsohn enjoys painting and playing golf; he once headed a life insurance company.
Recently, Heinsohn has worked fewer road games due to age and health issues. Donny Marshall, the Celtics' studio analyst, has filled in for Heinsohn during his absences. Brian Scalabrine also took on this role during the 2012-13 NBA season. When he's not working a road game with Mike Gorman, Heinsohn works as a studio analyst on the Celtics' television broadcasts.
