    S1E10: [10] A Dynasty Derailed

    S1E10: [10] A Dynasty Derailed

    After raising the 17th banner to the rafters of the Boston Garden, the Celtics were the heavy favorites going into the 2008/2009 season. A series of injuries over the next few years, including a February night in Utah where Kevin Garnett landed awkwardly trying to finish off an alley-oop.

    In 2010, a rematch with the Lakers, but another injury - this time to Kendrick Perkins - led to the C's squandering a lead in Game 7.

    The years that followed included the dismantling of "The Big 3", with Ray Allen controversially signing with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami. The team talks openly about Allen's disappointing departure.

    Pierce, Garnett and Doc all left the following summer, with Danny Ainge hitting the reset button once again in pursuit of the team's 18th championship banner.
