Return To The Rafters: A Celtic Return To The Top Of The Game
The Boston Celtics won 16 championships. But is have been almost a quarter century since the Celtics' last championship. That drought has been made even more pronounced by the recent success of both the Patriots and Red Sox. Then came The Trades. With two stunning, off season deals, the team that taught Boston how to win is back at the head of the class.
With the passing of Red Auerbach in 2006, General Manager Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers were left to navigate the course back to the place that Auerbach's Celtics knew so well on their own. Off-court scenes of the players give a rare look at the team as it tries to become a cohesive unit. The apprehension that is borne out of a quarter century of disappointments is captured in the eyes and words of the team's fans, new and old, who are starving for the taste of championship on which they were weaned.
