2007-2008 Boston Celtics
Sigh… Another team that beat the Lakers in the playoffs, but also another team that changed the way the NBA is played. The strong side defensive scheme the Celtics ran around the manic defensive energy of Kevin Garnett was awe-inspiring. It surely made teams pay attention as the defensive principles of that team that stopped a very good Lakers offense are now widespread through the league. The team came together once Ray Allen was able to be traded to the Celtics and Kevin Garnett agreed to come on board. The run this team put on was cut short a bit by age and injury, but the Celtics will always have 2008. The top four on the team? Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett. This is what Celtic dreams were made of and now they can relive them in NBA 2K16.
