John’s Ageless Championship Season
While John Havlicek was in the spotlight, Dave Cowens, Jo Jo White and the entire roster all contributed to Boston’s 13th NBA World Championship title in 1976. But the franchise had good reason to feature Havlicek on its 1975-76 yearbook cover. “Every time he steps onto the court, takes a shot or scores a point […]

Let’s Get It Back!
Coming off a loss in the 1982 Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics were determined to “get back” to their NBA World Championship-winning ways. The most important offseason move to meet that goal came by trading longtime franchise stalwart Dave Cowens to the Milwaukee Bucks for point guard Quinn Buckner.

Radja Joins Exclusive Company
International basketball star Dino Radja, who flirted with the idea of playing in the NBA for years, finally came to the United States for the 1993-94 season as a member of the Celtics.

Surrounded by Success
Celtics patriarch Red Auerbach posed with star players (left to right) John Havlicek, Dave Cowens and Jo Jo White. While Havlicek won eight NBA World Championship titles with the Celtics in the 1960s and 1970s, Cowens and White contributed to Boston’s titles in 1974 and 1976. The three players had something else in common: the […]

The Bird Lands in ’79
Larry Bird was the “most heralded collegian since Bill Walton,” proclaimed the 1979-80 Celtics media guide. The Indiana State product would have better seasons, but his rookie campaign more than lived up to the hype as he was named an All-Star, NBA Rookie of the Year and All-NBA First Team member. Bird wasn’t by himself […]
