After the Lakers stave off elimination by their archrivals in Game 5 to send the series back to Boston, the Celtics close out the 2008 NBA Finals at TD Garden in convincing fashion, capping the first season of the New Big Three Era with Banner No. 17 for the NBA's most storied franchise.
It's all in Episode 8 of the "Anything is Podable" podcast, NBC Sports Boston's look back at the 2008 champs.
Paul Pierce went from thinking his days in a Celtics uniform were over to winning NBA Finals MVP.
Doc Rivers gets his Gatorade bath as the Garden crowd counts downs the final minutes.
And Kevin Garnett utters those immortal words, "Anything is possible!"
The players tell the stories of an epic postgame locker room celebration, including Leon Powe asking, "Who is this random guy?!?!"
Also, the Duckboat parade that Doc promised Pierce, KG and Ray Allen months earlier becomes a reality.
Narrated by Kyle Draper, the podcast is the perfect way for Celtics fans to pass time this offseason and get excited for 2018-19, a season in which the Celtics have as good a chance at raising their 18th championship banner as they’ve had since that magical 2008 season.
