Former Celtic Assistant Dick Harter Dies

It was almost 10 years ago that the Celtics had the greatest NBA playoff comeback by being down 21 points going into the 4th quarter and beating the NJ Nets.  The head coach was Jim O'Brien but their lead assistant, and defensive guru, was Dick Harter.

Dick passed away at the age of 81 at his home in Hilton Head, SC.

He was the first head coach for the Charlotte Hornets during their expansion season and served as an assistant on many other teams during his NBA run.

Our condolences go out to Dick's family.
