Return to the Rafters (2008)

Return to the Rafters is the unique chronicle of the Celtics efforts to bring their present and future in line with their past. With the passing of Red Auerbach in 2006, GM Danny Ainge and Coach Doc Rivers were left to navigate the course back to the place that Auerbach’s Celtics knew so well. The apprehension that is born out of a quarter century of disappointments is captured in the eyes and words of the team’s fans, young and old, who have been starved of the championship taste on which they were weaned. Return to the Rafters tells the compelling story of a team that must overcome not only its opponents, but also its own legacy in order to achieve its goal.
