The Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics weren't only one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history. They were among the greatest ever in professional sports.
In a span of 13 seasons, from 1956 to 1969, they clinched 11 titles, including eight straight from 1959 to 1966.
Their anchor and pillar through all those championships, it's no surprise that Russell is at the top of the charts for most Finals games played in NBA history. The Hall of Famer is followed by another Celtics legend, his teammate Sam Jones.
