1974 Finals game 6 vs Bucks...Jabbar skyhook double OT
1976 Triple OT Finals vs Phoenix
1984 Game 7 Finals vs Lakers
1962? Finals vs Lakers....Baylor scores 62 or 63....Celtics win

Pack it up we've got a winner.  (don't pack it up)

Big TP, what a set of experiences.  Any non "big" games that were especially memorable

Can we get a thread where we can ask this guy anything? A Reddit style AMA?

Oh god I miss "Ask Edgar"
Single greatest thread in Celticblog history

My only Celtic game in person ever was Feb 26, 2011 versus Clippers at Staples Center in LA

C's won the game, but it was kind of a downer because Perk had just been traded a couple days before.  I didn't know much about Jeff Green and even less about Nenad Krstic who started.

Pretty good seats, and there were quite a few other Celtic fans there.  Hopefully someday I can get to see a game in Boston.

Living here in Knoxville - my best place to see the Celts has always been Atlanta. I went there twice in the 70's, one game I went courtside afterwards and met Johnny Most. My BEST Celtic memory. Also went several times in the 80's.

My one game in Boston was the old Garden, Easter Sunday 1985 vs Knicks. Ernie Grunfeld (former Vol) got me tickets.
What an experience. It was beautiful - All about the basketball back then - no screaming PA, no loud music, no dance team.
And the Celtics run out for layup lines with the simple intro, "Ladies & Gentleman, Your World Champion Boston Celtics".
Gave me chills.

Forgot to mention Bird's steal and pass to DJ to neat Detroit in the east dinals

Non big game memory....birth of my son Redz

Who was home watching on TV  :o

(The games, not the birth -  I had a good view of that one)
Never realized your father was on Celticsblog as well! This is so cool lol, not to mention that he's a real hardcore Celtics fan!

My first game I remember was against the Grizzlies in 2011, I was sitting in the Halo seats as part of a college alumni event. Been to a lot of games since. Top ones are:

KG's last night in the Garden. He didn't play but he danced to Gino time.

Smart's coming out game as a rookie against the Wizards. Somehow got free court side seats from someone my sister worked for. Pierce was on the Wizards that year and Rondo D'd him up right in front of me for the steal and come back win.

Pierce's last night in the Garden. Watching him drill that 3 to end the game. May have shed a tear...

Getting wrecked by the Cavs but it not really mattering because we were raising #34 to the rafters.

Last year's Golden State game and watching Brown go off. 

This year's Christmas game. It's always been on the bucket list to see the C's play on Christmas and to see them get an OT win over Philly was unreal.

My first time at the Garden was in April 2016. I live in SD so I went to Boston to run the Boston marathon but I took a whole week prior to the race to know the city and, of course, go to a Celtics game. I have been a Celtics fan since the 80s (back then I lived in Spain) so for me going to the Garden was as big of a moment as the Boston Marathon. I remember that we were playing for play off seeding and playing the Miami Heat, also in the play off race with us. We were down 26 points at the Half. It was the night we were honoring the Champion Teams from the 60s, 70s and 86... Bill Russel, Bill Walton, Kevin McHale  and many other Boston legends were there in the building...You could feel that something special was coming...The garden was rocking in the second half and we came back and won the game. I was an incredible experience!! IT4 was the king of the 4th, we were a bunch of underdogs but a fun team to root for!
