Article Summary:

“I got 55 rebounds against the Boston Celtics in one particular game,” related Chamberlain in a clip posted by Twitter user TodayInSports3.

Gorman began calling Celtics games with Boston icon Tommy Heinsohn in 1981 after a career as an aviator for the U.S. Navy in the 1970s, forming the industry’s longest-tenured duo until Heinsohn’s passing earlier last year.

He averaged 3.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game as a Celtic.

In 21 games over two seasons, the Duke product averaged 3.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game with the team.
