As a member of the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division, Boston Celtics compete in the Basket National Association.
Founded in 1946 as one of the league’s original eight teams, the Celtics play their home games at TD Garden, which they share with the National Hockey League’s Boston Bruins.
The Celtics are regarded as one of the most successful basketball teams in NBA history; the franchise is tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for most NBA Championships won with 17.
The 2006–07 Boston Celtics season was the 61st season of the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Celtics finished 24–58, the second-worst in franchise history after the 15–67 record in 1996–97. It was also the second-worst record in the league in 2006–07, only marginally in front of the Memphis Grizzlies.
The season was overshadowed by many injuries, in particular the injury to All-Star Paul Pierce, which caused him to miss seven weeks, and the deaths of Celtic legends Red Auerbach and Dennis Johnson.
The Celtics were faced with an emotional trauma when they lost their patriarch Red Auerbach, who died at the age of 89, just days before the start of the season.
At the beginning of the season, the days of Auerbach seemed like a distant memory as the Celtics lost six of their first seven games en route to a 5–13 start.
