The Boston Celtics are the team with the most NBA championships (17)
Throughout the years the Celtics have been the most feared team in the NBA with many hall of famers on their team like Larry Bird, Kevin Garnett, Dave Cowens, Bob Cousy, Bill Russel and many more.
The Celtics mascot is named Lucky and is a leprechaun and is a nod to Bostons historically large Irish population.
The Celtics have a notable rivalry with the Los Angeles Lakers, and have played the Lakers a record 12 times in the NBA Finals, including their most recent appearances in 2008 and 2010, where the Celtics have won nine meetings.

The Celtics biggest rivalry is the Lakers and that will never change but there are other teams that the celtics have had great battles with.

I love this rivalry because I hate the Wizards. Sure, the history isn’t there, but the hate sure is. Isaiah Thomas vs John Wall was a fun debate, but Kyrie vs John Wall will soon be the debate.

Cavs, Heat, Cavs, Lakers, whoever he plays for, Celtics fans will always hate Lebron James. Also, they should. Lebron is the best player in the East. It’s not about that though. His superteam crap ruined the NBA free agency process. He’s cocky. He’s arrogant. He got owned by the Big 3 Celtics and then helped to make Ray Allen the traitor that he is.

This is a historic rivalry, but I wouldn’t have put it on here the last 10 years. This year has changed everything. Markelle Fultz vs Jayson Tatum will forever be a conversation, especially if they’re both as good as advertised.
