The NBA world has been mourning the loss of Boston Celtics Hall of Fame legend Jo Jo White, who passed away from pneumonia earlier this week. The tributes have been far and wide, recognizing him for his impact on the game and just as much on the public as a community ambassador for the Celtics long after his playing career.

With the Celtics playing their first game since the news came out Tuesday, they honored the late White by laying his jersey and flowers on the seat he has sat in in the Garden loge for decades.

Rest In Peace, JoJo.
