What the Hell Happened to...Paul Silas?

“When we won that game (Game 7, 1974 Championship vs Milwaukee), everybody was out and pouring drinks on each other, and me and Dave (Cowens) were sitting there just staring at each other, and we didn’t say a word.

Boston Celtics All-Decade Teams: The 1970s

Guest post by The Sports Hayes  The 1970's The 70's began and ended in misery with championships in between. One of the weirdest decades in franchise history, that's for sure.
