Dennis Johnson nicknamed "DJ", was an American professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association's (NBA) Seattle SuperSonics, Phoenix Suns, and Boston Celtics.

Johnson began his professional career as a shooting guard. He eventually led the Sonics to their only NBA championship in 1979 winning the Finals MVP Award. After three seasons with the Phoenix Suns, he became the starting point guard for the Boston Celtics, with whom he won two more championships. Johnson was voted into five All-Star Teams, one All-NBA First and one Second Team, and nine consecutive All-Defensive First and Second Teams. Apart from his reputation as a defensive stopper, Johnson was known as a clutch player who made several decisive plays in NBA playoffs history.

The Celtics retired Johnson's No. 3 jersey which hangs from the rafters of the TD Garden, the home arena of the team. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame officially inducted Johnson to the Hall posthumously in 2010. He is considered by several sports journalists to be one of the most underrated players of all time.

Get this rare limited edition highly collectable sports memorabilia lithograph signed by Tommy Heinsohn who hand crafted this master piece in 1989. Each print is framed professional in a handsome silver plated frame and individually numbered out of 2500 Third Edition as it is an original.

Tom was associated with the Boston Celtics NBA for 6 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 spent over 30 years as the color commentator for the Celtics' local broadcasts. He is regarded as one of the most iconic Celtics figures in the franchise's history, known during his lifetime for his charisma and loyalty to the team and its traditions. From this, he earned the nickname "Mr. Celtic".

Very Rare piece and a must have for all avid collectors and especially the Boston Celtic fan. I have the entire set of 5 lithographs up for sale which consists of Larry Bird, Robert Parish, Kevin McHale, Dennis Johnson, and Danny Ainge up for sale (see last picture) which is a once in a lifetime offer.

You can buy individually but prepare the entire set of 5 stay with one collector which makes it way more valuable. Buy all 5 for a more discount0⁰ed price. This DJ one goes for $500 alone.
