Bob Cousy thrilled fans with his pin-point behind the back passing to teammates, earning the nickname "the Houdini of the Hardwood." An All-America at Holy Cross, Cousy helped the school to the NCAA title in 1947. Upon graduation, Cousy joined the Boston Celtics in 1950, the same year Red Auerbach arrived. The best playmaker of his era, Cousy led the league in assists in 8 of his 13 years in Boston. The ten-time All-NBA First Team guard earned league MVP honors in 1957. Cousy's arrival in the NBA also marked the beginnings of the All-Star Game. He played in 13 consecutive All-Star Games, receiving the game MVP award in 1954 and 1957. Cousy directed the Celtics to the NBA Championship in 1957, followed by five straight titles from 1959 to 1963, the year he retired. He briefly came out of retirement in 1969-70 as the Player/Coach of the Cincinnati Royals. In his career, Cousy dished out 6,955 assists and also scored 16,960 points. More importantly, his on-court leadership combined with his physical abilities to make Bob Cousy the model for the position of point guard. He was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history in 1996. Silver Relief medallion. In excellent condition; tip of nose and chin slightly worn.
