In Boston, championships live on forever.
They’re cemented above any other accolade in sports and deeply cherished by a passionate fan base that holds onto these precious memories for a lifetime. From the MVP to the bench guys who made one important play or had one big game when it mattered most, are revered.
Cedric Maxwell is one of them. His memorable role on the 1981 Celtics team carried Boston to a championship and Maxwell was named MVP.
He recently opened up about the MLB sign-stealing scandal on his podcast, The Cedric Maxwell Podcast, and talked about what it does to not only the Red Sox’ legacy as a franchise but, most importantly, what a mistake like this does to a city and its fans.
