The legendary Celtics basketball player spent some time in Somerville.
He's known as the best passer of the 1950s and lead the league in assists for eight seasons.
Cousy pioneered the behind-the-back pass. He broke his right arm as a child, which forced him to play left-handed, which then lead to his ambidextrous move.
Cousy was awarded MVP in 1957 and the Celtics retired his number 14 jersey in 1971.
