Founded by Walter Brown in 1946, the Boston Celtics are one of the two charter members of the NBA, along with the New York Knickerbockers, to play in their city of origin. They are also the most honored franchise in professional basketball history, with 16 world titles to date. The list of hall of fame players to wear Celtic green includes an impressive roster of Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, John Havlicek, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird, and Kevin McHale—to name just a few. Under the guidance of legendary head coach Red Auerbach, the Celtics established a seemingly unbreakable record of consecutive championships, with eight straight from 1959 to 1966. They are one of the few powerhouse dynasties in North American sports. With a foreword by hall of famer Dave Cowens, The Celtics in Black and White tells the story of this dynamic franchise through more than 200 photographs, many published here for the first time.
