What is the first thing the comes to mind when you hear Boston Celtics?  What players do you think of when you hear Boston Celtics?  What team do you think of when you hear they are a rivalry to Celtics? The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the Boston Celtics is championships. The players I think of are Larry Bird, John Havelick, Bill Russell, Red Auerbach, Bob Cousy, Sam Jones, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and more. A lot of people think of 17 banners raised in the TD garden. When I hear the word rivalry I think of Los Angeles Lakers. The Celtics went through a rough stretch back then. The organization did not win a championship in 21 years. The Celtics are an organization with a lot of class and pride. The players sacrifice things because they all have one goal is common which is championships. It has been a 5 years since the Celtics won a championship. The Celtics never give up when they are down by a lot of points. Celtics vs New York Knicks, it was game 6 and they were down by a lot and made a huge run to bring the game back to single digits, but the Knicks prevailed and won. The Celtics have faced a lot of adversity in the 2012-13 season. There was a lot of rumors, Injuries, and rotation changes. The Celtics are a team that love to prove the NBA analysts wrong because they always pick against the Celtics.  For example, 2011-12 season, the Celtics faced the Miami heat in the ECF and a lot of people picked them to get swept or only win one game, but they made it a seven game series and the Heat one. The Celtics are team that feeds off the crowd a lot. When the Celtics lost game 6 in 2012 vs the Heat, the crowd was chanting "Lets Go Celtics". This organization means a lot to fans because they do things differently. There are 3 slogans that a lot of fans say: Lets Go Celtics. I Bleed Green. I Die Green.
