The Boston Celtics is an NBA team with a lot of accomplishments. They have so many accomplishments that they are seen as one of the best teams in all of sports history. The Boston Celtics have a total of seventeen championships throughout the teams history. Bill Russell won eleven out of the seventeen championships. Bill Russell was one of the reasons the Celtics grew as a franchise. Bill Russell had a huge impact on basketball in general. He helped expand basketball in general, he helped basketball gain more fans. The Boston Celtics have the third highest all time win-loss record percentage. The percentage is .589 even though that percent isn’t that high. The percent is better than most of the teams in the NBA. The Boston Celtics have the most championships out of all the NBA teams, and the Celtics have the second most conference titles, which is twenty one. The only team that are ahead of the Celtics in the conference titles are Lakers. The Celtics and the Lakers have a rivalry, and even some fans consider the rivalry to be the best because they have been rival since the 70s. The person who really made the rivalry a huge deal was Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. They really made people interested to watch their match ups. Larry Bird is a Hall Of Famer, and he has multiple rings. Larry Bird has quite a bit of MVPs too. MVPs are the people who the media thinks is the most valuable player to the league and mostly his team. Without Larry Bird the Celtics wouldn’t have as much rings as they do. Larry Bird has a big part in Celtics history. He is considered one of the Celtic greats, and people consider him to be the best small forward of all time. Small forward is a position in basketball which some people call the position the three. The current Celtics are doing pretty well. Their starting five consist of Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Aron Baynes. The Celtics are considered to have one of the best benches in the league. Also their coach Brad Stevens is also a great coach and he knows what he’s doing and he knows what to do when the game comes to a close game. Some coaches even call Brad Stevens one of the best coaches in the league. I fully expect the Celtics to be one of the best team in the upcoming years, and for the Celtics to contend for a championship.
