I Boston Celtics I am returned to the NBA Finals for the 23rd time in their history, with the 4-0 victory in the conference finals series against the Indiana Pacers and on the day in which the league mourns the passing of a great former Bostonian like Bill Walton.

Against one of the Dallas Mavs and Minnesota Timberwolves, the Celtics they will play for the 18th title in their historya victory that would allow them to overcome the rivals of all time Los Angeles Lakers by number of championships won: Lakers and Celtics are stuck at 17 triumphs, counting the victories of the old Minneapolis Lakers, LA last won in 2020 while Boston’s last success dates back to 2008.

The 23 NBA Finals playedcounting those of 2024 which will start on June 6th at the TD Garden in Boston, whatever the opponent, put the Celtics at second place All-Time NBA for finals played, behind the usual ones Lakers who have played well in the Finals 32.

For the Celtics it is the second time at the Finals in the Jayson Tatum-Jaylen Brown era. The two Jays had brought the green and whites to the final also in 2022, only to lose 4-2 to the Golden State Warriors after leading the series 2-1. TO 35 years coach Joe Mazzulla has become theyoungest coach of the Boston Celtics to have brought the team in finalesince the days of Bill Russell that in 1966 won in the double capacity of player-coach at 33 years old. In 2022 Mazzulla was part of Ime Udoka’s coaching staff and would have taken over from him in October 2022 after the coach’s dismissal due to a sentimental scandal within the team.

Despite his young age – 26 for Tatum, 28 for Brown – Jayson Tatum e Jaylen Brown I’m one of couples of players most successful in the history of the playoffs by number of victories, to not have never won an NBA title. The two Jays have won 102 playoff games together, the fifth-most ever for a duo in the league behind Reggie Miller and Dale Davis (Pacers), Pat Ewing e Charles Oakley (Knicks), Jerry West e Elgin Baylor (lakers) e John Stockton e Karl Malone (Jazz) uncatchable at 172.

Of the current roster, Tatum, Brown, Al Horford and Payton Pritchard have already played in an NBA Finals, in 2022, and Jrue Holiday he is the only one to have won a title, in 2021 con i Milwaukee Bucks
