The World's Greatest Team: A Portrait of the Boston Celtics, 1957–69

The definitive history of the most dominant team in American sports history
No superlatives are equal to the Boston Celtics of the 1960s. From 1959 to 1966 they won championship after championship, an eight-in-a-row streak that outshines any other in American sports. Led by coach Red Auerbach, center Bill Russell, and point guard Bob Cousy, they played a kind of basketball that seemed to come from an earlier era. Auerbach’s Celtics played clean, honest, and strong, winning time and again by working as a team in a sport that is too often dominated by superstars.
 
This book is a season-by-season history of their dynasty, covering thirteen years of breathtaking success—a level of brilliance that may never be reached again.

'“Jeff Greenfield is a wonderful storyteller and a keen student of politics.” —Evan Thomas, author of The War Lovers'
