Rivaled only by the hated Los Angeles Lakers as the greatest basketball franchise of all time, the Boston Celtics have taken the NBA Title 17 times, including a streak of eight-straight championships from 1959-66. Counting the legendary Bill Russell and Larry Bird as only a few of their hall-of-famers, the Boston Celtics often have the best roster in the NBA. The 2011-2012 Boston Celtics are no different, topped-off by the Boston Three Party of Kevin Garnet, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen. After winning the 2008 NBA Championship and coming within a breath of taking the prize again in 2011, the trio wants to cap-off their careers in style with another playoff run.
The Boston Celtics have been written-off as “over the hill” by many but the leading trio proved they still had some tread on the tires. The real boon however, was the ascension of young Rajon Rondo, who not only provided depth but also began to play outside the shadows of the veterans. The Boston Celtics have worked on getting more speed on the roster and added upcoming F Brandon Bass in the offseason. Kevin Garnet will be used a lot more as a center, opening up a better transition game thanks to his raw athleticism.
The Boston Celtics have been the beasts of the East for the past few years, but there is growing opposition in the rebounding conference. The Atlantic Division was not be a huge challenge for the Boston Celtics, even if the New York Knicks are on the rise. The real Eastern Conference threats were outside the division, with the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat being the all-star stumbling blocks on the road to the NBA Title. Even with a shortened season and little chance to rest, the veteran Boston Celtics still went 39-27, securing a spot in the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
Equipped with a rejuvenated roster and five decades of tradition, the Boston Celtics are ready to continue their championship-winning history. Ticketholders can come cheer on the Boston Celtics throughout the playoffs as the team wreaks havoc on the road and at home inside TD Banknorth Garden.
