http://www.sportsline.com/ He died at practice as coach of the Austin Toros of the D-League. I'll always remember the play where Bird stole the ball against Detroit and DJ was there to lay it in. Also it seems he would always hit the big shot at the top of the key against the Lakers. RIP DJ. First Red, now DJ. Never mind the record it is a dark year in Celtics history. Some stats: Johnson played in five NBA All-Star games and was named to the All-Defensive First Team six times. In 14 NBA seasons, he scored 15,535 points (a 14.1 points-per-game average) and averaged 17.3 points in 180 playoff games.
