    BREAKING NEWS: Former Celtics guard Dennis Johnson died today at age 52, Celtics executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed to the Globe. The Austin American-Statesman is reporting on its website that Johnson fell ill at the Austin Convention Center in Texas this afternoon. Johnson, an NBA Hall of Fame guard who played on championship teams with Ainge, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish in the 1980s, was the coach of the Austin Toros, a team in the NBA Development League with an affiliation to the Celtics.

    R.I.P.

    As a long time Lakers fan, I used to hate Dennis Johnson. The guy was a great player, however.

    RIP.

    R.I.P. Dennis Johnson. This is very sad. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this time of need.

    Wow, talk about a name I hadn't heard in a long, long time.

    One of the best defensive players of the 80's, RIP Dennis Johnson.

    RIP DJ.

    That '86 championship Celtics team was stacked....DJ, Ainge, Bird, McHale, Parrish. Walton off the bench.
