      The basketball world took the news of John Havlicek’s death hard. The Celtics legend died Thursday in Jupiter, Fla. He was 79.

      Here is a sampling of reactions from around the NBA and beyond:

      NBA commissioner Adam Silver

      “John Havlicek was a wonderful friend who represented the best of the NBA. He described himself as a man of routine and discipline — a humble approach that produced extraordinary results, including eight NBA championships with the Boston Celtics, 13 All-Star selections and some of the most iconic moments in league history. A trusted teammate who prioritized winning, John’s passion and energy endeared him to basketball fans and made him a model for generations of NBA players. We send our deepest sympathies to John’s wife, Beth, his son, Chris, and his daughter, Jill, as well as the entire Celtics organization.”

      Basketball Hall of Fame president and chief executive John L. Doleva

      “The Basketball Hall of Fame family deeply mourns the loss and celebrates the life of John Havlicek. John was an incredible man, with a unique balance of modesty and competitive spirit. He was certainly a fan favorite in Boston and will be deeply missed in the basketball community.”

      Bill Russell

      Magic Johnson

      Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

      Tommy Heinsohn

      Heinsohn spoke Thursday to NBC Sports Boston.

      “This guy was the ultimate professional player. He focused — even during the Vietnam War — it was basketball. He was 100 percent involved in everything that happened. He was a great captain. He accepted responsibility. . . . He was a Celtic all the way.”
