You Want the Right Jacket
Date: ca. 1980s
While this may look like just a regular jacket, imagine all the winning this home warmup may have seen. The Celtics won more home games (383) between the 1979-80 season and 1989-90 season than any other team in the NBA. They won all but one game at home (40-1) in 1985-86, including the playoffs, a record which has never been equaled. Plus, Boston won 48 straight home games between December 11, 1985, and December 10, 1986. Their arch-rival Los Angeles Lakers snapped the streak on December 12, 1986, with a 117-110 win. That’s one lucky jacket!
