Professional basketball is serious business and more so for an organization like the Boston Celtics, for which winning has become the norm. But playing winning ball is more than just sticking to X's and O's and taking home hardware. It is about teamwork, balance, creativity, chemistry and, most importantly, having fun.
For some, like Paul Pierce, the hardware only followed after much time, hard work and perseverance. For others, like Reggie Lewis, there was not much time at all for anything. But having a long career in Green or short, winning or losing, being a Celtic means being able to take in the moment and enjoy it.
