The behind-the-scenes story of the glory years of one of professional basketball’s best and most beloved teams
 
I so admired Cousy and Russell as a kid, and I rooted from the depths of my heart for Tommy Heinsohn, Frank Ramsey, Tom Sanders, Jim Loscutoff, Bill Sharman, Sam Jones, K. C. Jones, John Havlicek, and all the others in green. I knew I was watching something special, but it wasn’t until I was much older, when time provided perspective, that some of their feats seemed so incredible. . . .
Year after year, the Celtics won, with essentially the same cast—a circumstance now impossible given the free
agency of the modern era—men molded by a singularly wise master of the game, Red Auerbach. The Dynasty is a great sports story, but it is a story rooted in a transcending and tumultuous period in American history. . . .
The Celtics players were a diverse group of men from all corners of the country, but they had more in common than they, or anyone else, would have thought. Dramatic changes swirled about them . . . but none of those developments distracted the players enough to disturb their artistry on the court. All the Celtics did between 1957 and 1969—while their nation changed forever—was win.
