Before Pierce, before Larry, before Russell and even before Red, there were these guys. Founded in 1914 as the New York Celtics, this team originally consisted of Irish teenagers from a Hell’s Kitchen settlement house, but would soon drop both the New York from their name and their Irish bias, picking up local stars such as Joe Lapchick (Czech), Nat Holman (Jewish), and Henry “Dutch” Dehnert (Dutch, duh). The Celtics would go on to become the most famous pro team of the 1920s, playing in several leagues as well as barnstorming. In their prime, they are estimated to have won 90 percent of their games, one season finishing with the confounding record of 193–11–1. Known for their ball movement and tenacious defense, the team is often credited with developing the give-and-go, switching on defense, and formalizing the pivot play. 

Originally published in FreeDarko Presents: The Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History. Paper size: 13" x 10" Archival UltraChrome print on fine art paper. Open edition, signed by the artist. Please allow two to three weeks for delivery
