JoJo is still a big part of the Celtics' family and I am happy to see him honored in this way.
When you talk about the recent history of basketball, JoJo White's name seems to keep popping up.
On Saturday, August 19, White was among nine African American achievers inducted into the St. Louis Gateway Classic Sports Foundation Walk of Fame. The Walk of Fame recognizes African Americans achievers who have contributed to their community, and many of the inductees are among the first African Americans to serve in their field. White is the first African American from St. Louis to play in the NBA, and he's very proud of the honor recently bestowed on him at the Walk of Fame.
A seven-time All-Star for the Celtics, White is no stranger to being honored, but he said that being recognized in his hometown was special to him, since his family could be there to see it.
