NBA ALL TIME TEAMS: Boston Celtics Edition

This one is going to be a doozy. Tuesday I wrote about the Atlanta Hawks and now it’s time for Boston. The Celtics have won 17 championships and 21 conference finals making the Celtics the winningest franchise in the NBA. SUCK IT LAKERS!!!!! This list will probably be a bit controversial and for that.
