This season the Boston Celtics have the opportunity to accomplish a feat that few championship squads have been unable to do – win back-to-back NBA titles. Those who have done it know the magnitude of that challenge.

Leon Powe looked as if he hadn't slept for weeks. It had been two days since the birth of his son and he was running on fumes. Despite his exhaustion, he posted a then-season high 10 points and six rebounds in just 15 minutes in his first game back.
