The Celtics had a chance to add to the franchise's illustrious legacy in the 2022 NBA...

Playoffs. Boston would love nothing more than to break the tie for most NBA titles...

with the Los Angeles Lakers, and this team has the skill, coaching, and chemistry to...

win the Larry O'Brien Trophy. Of course, without the tremendous contributions of...

the teams from the 1950s and 1960s, the Celtics would not be in this position.

Boston won 11 championships in 13 seasons under Bill Russell's leadership...

including eight in a row from 1958 to 1966. During his Hall of Fame career, Sam...

Jones was a major player of the Celtics dynasty, winning 10 championship rings.

His No. 24 jersey hangs in the TD Garden rafters...

and it's now on the current Boston Red Sox uniforms.

The Celtics opted to memorialise Jones by putting a black patch with his No. 24 on...

their jerseys. Before their game against the Suns on Dec. 31, they offered a moment of silence for Jones.
