"The Boston Celtics were a basketball franchise before the NBA even existed. The amazing journey of this storied team lies right inside this cover. Writer and interviewer Michael McClellan examines not just the legends like Bird, Cousy, Pierce, and Russell, but so many others who played for Boston, or worked for the organization, or just bled Celtic green. A great book for NBA junkies and for people who hate the Lakers." --Wayne Federman, author of Maravich

"There have been many books written about the Boston Celtics, but none like this. Michael D. McClellan strikes the perfect balance between the team's signature moments and its iconic players, taking the reader on an historic ride through the decades, from set shot to hip-hop. With McClellan at the wheel and hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane riding shotgun, The Boston Celtics is a fresh take on the NBA's most decorated franchise. A slam dunk!" --Dee Brown, former Boston Celtics Captain, 1991 NBA Slam Dunk Champion
