A Q&A With Tommy Heinsohn

Tommy Heinsohn made an appearance at the Basketball Hall of Fame today, talking to a large group of kids about cigar smoking and fighting on the court with opponents (seriously, both topics came up. It was awesome). I talked to him beforehand about his hook shot, running in transition, the future of the Celtics and more. Here’s an excerpt, via MassLive.com:

Tommy was exactly as entertaining and as loquacious as you would hope. Head over to MassLive to read the whole interview.

Also worth noting: Tommy mentioned that if he hadn’t been a basketball player, he would have been an artist. If you are interested, here’s some of his artwork. He’s quite good.
