The Boston Celtics on Tuesday lost an iconic member of their franchise.

Basketball Hall of Famer Tommy Heinsohn died at the age of 86. Heinsohn was a Celtic through and through, serving as a player, coach and television voice dating back to 1956.

Social media tributes for Heinsohn quickly began to flood in after the news broke. Among the posts was a tweet from Isaiah Thomas, who garnered a nickname from Heinsohn during his two-plus seasons in Boston.

Heinsohn certainly brought quite a bit to the Celtics. A six-time All-Star, Heinsohn won eight NBA championships with Boston as a player and tacked on two more as a head coach. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his contributions as both a player and coach.
