Here's the Laker in our mystery photo: Darrall Imhoff.

The Lakers over the Celtics 123-115, April 26, 1966, tying the playoffs 3-3.  The Celtics, playing in Boston, won the seventh game 95-93, taking their eighth consecutive NBA championship. Several people have asked me the name of the Celtic player to the right. He's not identified on the back of the photo. Feel free to guess.

Update: The Celtics in question have been identified as Larry Siegfried, John Havlicek, center of photo, and Satch Sanders, No. 16 (which Mike Ryerson  notes looks like a 15 because the angle and wrinkles in the jersey).
