Maxwell reacts

Celtics legend Cedric Maxwell reacted to the news of Dennis Johnson’s passing.

“That was my guy,” said Maxwell. “We were very close. We were kind of like two peas in a pod. He was alot of fun. As people would say, ‘I am shocked.’ It’s like having a brother pass away. You win championships, go through wars together, and to know he’s passed away is amazing. When Red [Auerbach] passed, you’re thinking of Red’s age. When a person your age passes away, you feel very vulnerable about your life and where you stand.”
