Boston Celtics legend John Havlicek passed away last Thursday at the age of 79. The Celtics legend is the franchise's all-time leading scorer and won eight titles during his time with the team. His family released a statement saying that Havlick had been dealing with Parkinson's disease.

Tributes have been pouring in for Havlicek over the course of the weekend, and on Sunday, the Milwaukee Bucks offered a tribute of their own. Ahead of the first game of their series with the Celtics, the Bucks held a moment of silence to honor Havlicek, as captured by the Celtics Twitter.

This was a very nice, sportsman-like gesture by the Bucks, especially ahead of a series in which many are expecting there to be bad blood.

The Celtics are also honoring Havlicek during the game. They are wearing a patch with Havlicek's number, 17, on the left shoulder of their jerseys.

On Saturday night, the Boston Bruins also had a tribute for Havlicek ahead of their double-OT loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
