Boston Celtics Stats & Team History

The Celtics played their first NBA season during 1946-47. This team took a few seasons to become a great team. Red Auerbach, one of the all-time winningest coaches, arrived in 1950. Bob Cousy also joined the team as two of the first pieces of a dynasty.

In 1956, Russell debuted with the Celtics. Along with an MVP season from Cousy, the Celtics won their first of many NBA Championships. Sam Jones joined later on in 1958 and, finally, John Havlicek in 1962. With this core, the Celtics went on to win eight straight NBA titles. Overall, Boston won 11 titles in the span of 13 seasons.
Boston won many of its titles over the Lakers. The two franchises became rivals as they met in the NBA Finals seven times during this span, with Boston winning all of them. Russell dominated as a player and eventually took over for Auerbach as a player-coach for three seasons. Auerbach stayed on as an executive for Boston, a position he held until his death in 2006.

By the 1970s, Russell, Cousy, and Jones had retired, but Dave Cowens and Jo Jo White joined an aging Havlicek to continue the Celtics’ success. Boston won two more championships in the decade.
The trio grew old and Boston had a few seasons as one of the NBA’s worst teams. But this was a blessing in disguise, as it allowed them to acquire Bird. He became a three-time MVP, and -together with other stars like Kevin McHale and Robert Parish- he got Boston three more NBA Championships, plus two more NBA Finals appearances.

The Celtics almost continued the dynasty in the mid-80s, when the franchise used its second overall pick to select Len Bias. Unfortunately, Bias died before playing in the NBA. With its stars aging and retiring, Boston went into a long rebuild during the 1990s.

After missing six consecutive postseasons, the Celtics’ fortunes turned with the arrival of Pierce in 1998. Several seasons later, new executive Danny Ainge acquired future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. With Pierce, the trio won the Celtics its first title in 21 seasons.

As the trio aged out, Ainge traded Pierce and Garnett to Brooklyn in what would go down as one of the most lopsided deals. With the picks, Boston quickly rebuilt with Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart. The trio now leads the Celtics’ stats as they look to win another NBA title.
