The Boston Celtics are an NBA franchise based out of Boston, Massachusetts playing in the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. Since their first year of play in 1946, the Celtics have been undisputedly the most successful franchise in NBA history. From 1946-1995 the Celtics played their home games at the iconic Boston Garden before moving in to their current arena, the TD Garden.
No team in the history of the National Basketball Association has won more NBA Championships than the Boston Celtics have. The C's have absolutely dominated the league since their founding, as they have won at least one championship in nearly every decade of their existence. All in all, the Celtics have taken home 21 Conference Titles and 17 NBA Championships throughout their 68 years of play. Boston is only one of three teams in league history to make the Finals four years in a row, as they did so from 1984-1987. An incredible number of NBA legends have cemented their legacies in Bean Town. From Bill Russell and Bob Cousy in the 1960's to Larry Bird in the 80's and Paul Pierce in the 2000's, basketball greatness has never been absent at The Garden.
