For the majority of many of our lives if not all of them, Boston Celtics Hall of Fame broadcaster Mike Gorman has been the voice of the Celtics, but only the biggest Celtics nerds out there likely know how Gorman stumbled into the job four decades ago this week to join Celtics player and coaching Hall of Famer Tommy Heinsohn.
The iconic Boston broadcaster recently told the tale of how he managed to land a gig covering the most storied franchise in the NBA, a job more than a few aspiring broadcasters would kill for in an appearance on the CLNS Media "Celtics Beat" podcast.
Gorman joins hosts Evan Valenti and Adam Kaufman to talk about his early career and other aspects of his past he did not have time to cover in his recent Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame induction as a broadcaster.
Watch the video embedded above to hear the story for yourself, as well as a handful of other nuggets from the past of one of the men with the best view of our favorite team over the last 40 years.
