Best of Boston

1995 Best Bench Player

Ed Pinckney

Former Boston Celtics player Ed Pinckney left the pros in the dust when he competed in a Boston Globe stock-picking contest. Pinckney tagged RJR Nabisco, which fell some 27 percent during 1994. But his competitors’ picks fell even further. As any bench player knows, when the call comes you don’t need to be great…just better.
