LEXINGTON, S.C. — Cedric Maxwell played 11 years in the NBA and won a pair of championships with the Celtics including in 1981 when he was named the MVP of the Finals.
The man nicknamed "Cornbread" was in Lexington Wednesday for a book signing at LJ's Par and Grill. Maxwell starred at UNC Charlotte, leading that program to the 1977 Final Four. A few months later, he was taken with the 12th overall pick of the NBA Draft by Boston and that put him on a path where he became a permanent part of Celtics lore.
