Anything is Podable podcast Episode 10: Dynasty derailed

Share

The final installment of our Anything is Podable podcast looks at the aftermath of the Celtics' championship season from 10 years ago. 

After raising the 17th banner to the rafters of the Garden, the Celtics were the heavy favorites going into the 2008-09 season. A series of injuries over the next few years, including a fateful February night in Utah where Kevin Garnett landed awkwardly trying to finish off an alley-oop, derailed the dream of back-to-back NBA titles.

In 2010, a Finals rematch with the Lakers, but another injury - this time to Kendrick Perkins - led to the C's squandering a lead in Game 7.

The years that followed included the dismantling of "The Big Three", with Ray Allen controversially signing with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami. The team talks openly about Allen's disappointing departure.

Paul Pierce, Garnett and Doc Rivers all left the following summer, with Danny Ainge hitting the reset button once again in pursuit of the team's 18th championship banner.

Narrated by Kyle Draper, the podcast is the perfect way for Celtics fans to pass time this offseason and get excited for 2018-19, a season in which the Celtics have as good a chance at raising their 18th championship banner as they’ve had since that magical 2008 season.
