Top of the World: The Inside Story of the Boston Celtics' Amazing One-Year Turnaround to Become NBA Champions
by Peter May
Hardcover from Da Capo Press

"I'm on top of the world," shouted NBA Defensive Player of the Year Kevin Garnett after the Boston Celtics clinched their 17th NBA championship over their arch rival, the Kobe Bryant-led Los Angeles Lakers. Indeed he was on top as were his teammates as the most illustrious franchise in NBA history won their first championship in over twenty years. Peter May, who has covered the Boston Celtics for nearly 25 years for the Boston Globe and the Hartford Courant and the author of the bestselling The Last Banner- an account of the Celtic's last championship season-chronicles the remarkable 2008 championship run of the team in green. Tracing the biggest single-season turnaround in NBA history of this storied franchise, who went from having the second-worst record in the NBA last year to the best record this year, May charts, both the highs and lows of the season. From losing out on the Number 1 and Number 2 pick in last year's draft lottery to swinging trades for future Hall of Famers, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, from compiling the best record in the NBA and winning Game 4 in the Finals with the greatest come-from-behind victory in NBA Finals history to capping off their remarkable season with the league-leading 17th championship, it's all here. Drawing on interviews with Defensive Player of the Year, Kevin Garnett, Captain and NBA Finals MVP and captain, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Coach Doc Rivers, among others, May serves up an behind-the-scenes account of the Celtics spectacular return to glory. Finally, May will also profile one opposing player from each playoff series, including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

Founded by Walter Brown in 1946, the Boston Celtics are one of the two charter members of the NBA, along with the New York Knickerbockers, to play in their city of origin. They are also the most honored franchise in professional basketball history, with 16 world titles to date. The list of hall of fame players to wear Celtic green includes an impressive roster of Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, John Havlicek, Sam Jones, Tom Heinsohn, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird, and Kevin McHale to name just a few. Under the guidance of legendary head coach Red Auerbach, the Celtics established a seemingly unbreakable record of consecutive championships, with eight straight from 1959 to 1966. They are one of the few powerhouse dynasties in North American sports. With a foreword by hall of famer Dave Cowens, The Celtics in Black and White tells the story of this dynamic franchise through more than 200 photographs, many published here for the first time.
