One of the last of the players from the early title years is gone.

He was the original 6th man. Before Havlicek, Silas, McHale, and others.

7 titles in a 9 year career. 7 in 8 after he returned from military service. Excellent playoff performer, was arguably the key player for the C's in the '57 and '59 playoffs.

It's a little known fact that Red tapped him to replace Red as HC of the Celts, but Ramsey turned him down to return to his home state - Kentucky - where he coached the ABA Colonels for part of a season.

Farewell #23.
