From the Garden to the Colosseum
Just weeks after acquiring Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, the Celtics participated in preseason games in Europe which included a game in Rome against the Toronto Raptors. Garnett posted a double-double in the game with 19 points and 16 rebounds, while Paul Pierce added 21 points and Allen scored 10. “It was good to finally […]
Guarding the Garden
Over the course of the 2007-08 season, the Celtics were nearly unstoppable at home, finishing with a 35-6 record in the friendly confines of TD Garden. On January 4, 2008, Boston took on the struggling Memphis Grizzlies. With 20 seconds left in the game, Kevin Garnett made a layup for two of his 23 points […]
Lee Sports the Green and Black
With a touch of black in lieu of the traditional white, Celtics shooting guard Courtney Lee sported this alternate jersey during the 2012-13 season.

On the Cover: Return to Glory
The Celtics took the basketball world by storm when they captured their 17th NBA World Championship title in 2008. Paul Pierce signed this poster-sized commemorative issue of Sports Illustrated that celebrated the championship. Director of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge, who put the team together, said these five made Boston an attractive location. “With our team […]
On the Cover: The New Big Three
The 2007-08 Celtics found the right formula by adding superstars Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, along with important role players like Eddie House, James Posey and Glen Davis, to a core of Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins. Boston recorded 42 more victories than the previous season, by far the biggest turnaround in NBA […]
Signed by Szczerbiak
Wally Szczerbiak signed a jersey outfitted with a black shamrock patch to commemorate Red Auerbach, the legendary Celtics head coach and executive who passed away days before the 2006-07 season. Szczerbiak and the Celtics wore these jerseys throughout the campaign, which marked Szczerbiak’s last in Boston as he was shipped in the trade that brought […]
Smart’s Downtown Game
Boston has had some incredible 3-point shooters over the years, including Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Larry Bird. But it was Marcus Smart who set a new team record for most 3-pointers in a game, hitting 11 behind the arc during a 123-119 loss to the Phoenix Suns. Despite the tough loss, Smart balled out […]
Sweet 17: Champs in ’08
While the Celtics are one of the most successful franchises in sports history, we’ll admit it – following the title win in 1986, Boston hit a rough patch. It would take over two decades to realign, but by the late 2000s the Celtics had built a team destined for another ring. Led by the “new” […]
The Big Four Makes a Run
No longer merely a Big Three, the Celtics enjoyed the play of Rajon Rondo, who had developed into a two-time All-Star heading into the 2011-12 season and would earn another nod in that campaign. In the 2012 NBA Playoffs, the Celtics eliminated the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers before matching up with the Miami Heat […]
The Big Three in the ’08 Finals
The new Big Three, shown here during 2008 Eastern Conference Finals, made a big improvement on the team’s ability to win.

After the Celtics won the 2008 NBA World […]
