Synopsis

Experience the illustrious and passionate history of The Boston Celtics, one of NBA's most popular franchises, as it happened through the articles, features, and lens of their hometown and national news outlet, The Boston Globe.

The NBA has existed nearly 80 years, championing the game of basketball around the U.S. and the world. Of all the Finals played, one franchise, The Boston Celtics, has ended up hoisting the trophy nearly 25% of the time, with a league leading 17 NBA titles. While Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown make headlines in today's era of Celtics basketball, The Boston Globe has covered it all since 1946.

The Boston Globe Story of the Celtics collects more than 350 articles chronicling the team's rich history as told through the best sports writing and coverage by Globe reporters, led by veteran sports columnist and author of The Boston Globe Story of the Red Sox, Chad Finn. Relive iconic moments like John Havlicek's steal, Larry Bird's 60-point game, and the assembling of 2008's "Big Three" of Pierce, Garnett, and Allen. Read how players like Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, and Isaiah Thomas performed under the lights of TD Garden. ​Black-and-white photographs throughout illustrate every era up to the 2024 season in this special archive brought to you by two beloved Boston teams.
