not to mention no free agency or salary cap. my YMCA league is more competitive than the NBA in the 60s .

let's talk about what they've done since 88 when the heat were created and around the time most of us were born .

An Unexpected Tradition: The Parquet Floor

In 1946, when Boston Celtics President Walter Brown planned an $11,000 basketball floor to be built in Boston Arena (presently Northeastern University's Matthews Arena), he didn't know that he would be building a tradition in Boston that has become more than the NBA teams that play on it. Prior to the parquet, the Boston Celtics played games on the concrete floor of the Boston Arena to lessen their game schedule at Boston Garden.

Brown recognized the immediate need for a floor and inquired about construction. Due to the post-World War II lumber shortages, the East Boston Lumber Company had to construct the floor in a parquet style, in which small pieces of wood are pieced together. Thus, as a result of wartime aftermath and an immediate need for a floor, the court was built in a very untraditional manner.

The original parquet floor was moved from Boston Arena to Boston Garden in December 1952, and quickly adopted the nickname "Cousy floor" after Celtics star Bob Cousy (otherwise known as the "Prince of the Parquet"). According to legend, it was believed that Cousy used his knowledge of the parquet's dead spots and warped boards to his advantage allowing him to steal dribbles and passes from his opponents.

The current parquet floor consists of 264 panels held together by wood planks and brass screws with the help of an additional 988 bolts. When constructed for home games, the floor is pieced together by a group of TD Banknorth Garden workers known as the "Bull Gang."

The parquet floor has been refurbished several times, the most recent restoration taking place in August 1997. During the six-week process, the floor is sanded, clear sealant is applied, and court lines and the Celtics logo are repainted.

Through the years, the parquet has withstood quick-paced, rubber-soled sneakers, constant dribbling, and the frequent a.ssembling and disassembling for home games. In September 1995, the floor was moved next door from the old Boston Garden to the TD Banknorth Garden. The last game on the parquet was played on December 22, 1999 and it has since been replaced by a replica court integrating portions of the original floor with a new parquet. For sports fans from around the country, the parquet floor has been, and will continue to be, the foundation of a great sports tradition in New England.
