Dan looks at the 22 year drought since the Celtics' last championship. Says the 1986 Celtics were one of the best teams ever but it has been down hill ever since Len Bias died.

He hints the good ole days are back and should be savored -- and there are no guarantees the Celts will be back in this position next year.
