Despite the Celtics' 17 NBA Championships and perennial success over the years, the team has faced some trying times throughout its history and gone through some dark periods. There have been times when it's seemed as if the Celtics just couldn't get the right mix of talent at the right time, and went on to suffer at the hands of their rivals.
