Joseph Henry "Jo Jo" White

Joseph Henry White always came to play. From his All-America days at the University of Kansas, to his run to gold in the 1968 Olympics, to the 33 points he scored in the classic triple-overtime thriller in Game 5 of the 1976 NBA Finals, Jo Jo was the perfect fit for any team chasing the championship hardware. The seven-time All Star worked tirelessly, consistently logging more than 40 minutes per night for the fast-breaking Boston Celtics. The durable White was a coach’s dream - the consummate professional, the steadfast teammate, the single-minded competitor, and the fundamentally-sound leader. He led by example - a quiet presence on the court, a calming influence in the locker room, and that rare individual talent who was wise enough to assimilate into the team dynamic. White recorded more than 14,000 points, 4,000 assists, and 3,000 rebounds in 12 NBA seasons and graduated fourth on the all-time scoring chart at Kansas.
