Boston Celtics Franchise history
The building of a dynasty The Boston Celtics were formed in 1946 as a team in the Basketball Association of America, and became part of the Basketball Association after the merger of the BAA and the National Basketball League in the fall of 1949. The Celtics struggled during their early years, until the hiring of coach Red Auerbach.
Boston Celtics The dynasty
In 1958, the Celtics again advanced to the Finals, this time losing to the Hawks in 6 games and began a dynasty that would last for more than a decade. In 1959 won the Championship after sweeping the Minneapolis Lakers. Still coached by Auerbach, the Celtics won seven more consecutive championships, extending their streak to eight in a row. The Boston Celtics of the mid-1950s–60s are widely considered one of the most dominant teams of all- time. The streak of 8 consecutive championships is the longest streak of consecutive championships in U.S. professional sports history.
Rebuilding the Celtics dynasty
The Bird era Bird debuted for the Celtics during the 1979–80 season, a year after his selection. In 1983–84 the Celtics finally get back to the Finals after a three year hiatus. In 1985, the Lakers and Celtics met again, but this time the Lakers took the championship. This was the first time the Lakers had defeated the Celtics for a championship, as well as the only time that the Celtics lost a championship at Boston Garden. In 1985–86 the Celtics fielded one of the best teams in history. The Celtics remained competitive in 1986–87 and again winning the Eastern Conference Championship. After thirteen seasons with the club and winning a gold medal in the Barcelona Olympics with the Dream Team, Bird retired in 1992 primarily due to his back injuries. The 2006 season began with the death of Red Auerbach at the age of 89 who was one of the few people who had been a part of the league since its inception in 1946.
Celtics Return to championship form
In the summer of 2007 the Celtics had a successful regular season, and complete the largest single-season turnaround in history, finishing with a league-best 66–16 record, 42 games better than the previous year's. The series continued and the Celtics took down the Pistons in six games, winning the deciding game on the road.
