Entertain clients in a Boston Celtics luxury suite at TD Garden
One of the premier professional basketball franchises, the Boston Celtics have been a staple in the NBA since its inception in 1946. Over the years, Celtics basketball has come to personify the city of Boston with its gritty hard-working attitude. That mindset has led to unprecedented success in the form of 17 NBA Championships, more than any other team.
The rafters at TD Garden are packed with banners commemorating the vast accolades of this team. From 17 championships, 21 conference titles, 21 division titles, 21 retired numbers, and more on the way, the Boston Celtics are one of the most celebrated teams in basketball.
The Celtics have had star players to spare over the years, with no shortage of NBA greats suiting up to play for Boston. However, two names stand above all else. Larry Bird, the standout forward from Indiana State joined the Celtics in 1979 and played his entire career there. By the time he had retired in 1992, Bird had amassed accolades including three championship rings, two NBA Finals MVP Awards, three NBA MVP Awards, 12 NBA All-Star appearances, among countless others. A fierce competitor with a habit of trash talking, Bird personified the tough Boston attitude and brought that intensity to the court each night.
Considered to be the greatest Celtics player of all-time, Bill Russell is the ultimate basketball champion. Winning an incredible 11 NBA titles throughout the course of his 13 year career, Bill Russell was a five time NBA MVP with 12 NBA All-Star appearances. Though not one to connect with the fans, Russell is still revered in Boston for his tenacity and unending dedication to winning. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest to have ever played the game.
The current squad, ever-longing to join the ranks of these legendary figures, will be heading to the post-season with the dream of adding yet another championship banner to the rafters at TD Garden. Head coach Brad Stevens has his team performing well as look to dethrone King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to represent the Eastern Conference in another NBA Finals series. Forwards Al Horford and Jae Crowder flank center Ami Johnson. Avery Bradley starts for the Celtics at point guard and the Isiah Thomas continues to make a name for himself (stepping out from the shadow of his father, an NBA Hall of Famer of the same name) in Boston at point guard.
While the list of Hall of Famers and fan favorite Celtics players stretches into double digits, among the most loved basketball figures in Boston include Red Auerbach, Jo Jo White, Sam Jones, Robert Parish, Bob Cousy, Paul Pierce, Dave Cowens, Kevin McHale, John Havlicek, Larry Bird, and Bill Russell.
