The NBA’s Boston Celtics have more championship banners than any other NBA team. In all of sports, only the New York Yankees and Montreal Canadians have more championships to their name. Founded in 1946, the Celtics dominated professional basketball from 1957 to 1969, winning 11 or 13 championships. In that span, the team won 8 in a row, which still stands as the longest championship streak by a North American pro sports team.
Few franchises have boasted more All Star legends than the Celtics. From Bill Russell and Larry Bird, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, the Celtics have always crowded the floor with unique talent. The men in white and green won their 17th championship in 2008. Three stars from that team remain: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo. Shooting guard Ray Allen has since joined Lebron James and the Miami Heat. As the All-Star break approaches, the Celtics sit just 5 games back from the Atlantic Division leading New York Knicks. The Celtics recently broke a 6-game winning streak with a loss to the Charlotte Hornets. Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were recently voted as starters for the upcoming NBA All-Star Game. The two will face off against Kobe Bryant and the Western Conference All Stars in what has become an offensive spectacle for the ages, year after year.
Boston Celtics Tickets remain a hot commodity, and for good reason. If you’re heading to Boston any time soon, you should make a trip to TD Garden and see the Celtics battle it out with some familiar foes. On Thursday, January 24th, The New York Knicks come to town. The two teams have both played well this season, which has renewed the classic East Coast rivalry. On Sunday, January 27th, Lebron and the Heat visit TD Garden for what should be a memorable matchup. Look for Coach Doc Rivers to hit King James with everything he’s got. With physical play from Jason Collins, and the usual hard-nosed defense of KG, the Celtics have a real shot of coming out on top.
