With the Big 3 era gone, Boston turns to a new leader

The Boston Celtics are much like the original Mars Rover. Experimental in nature, the Spirit was only supposed to last a short time. Instead, it long outlasted its expected shelf life, and it spawned a new generation of rovers that ushered in a new era of space exploration.
