Cedric Maxwell Trolls James Worthy as Celtics Play for Record 18th Title

With a Game 1 win over the Warriors in the 2022 NBA Finals, the Celtics are just three wins away from an 18th championship. It also means the Celtics are three wins away from overtaking their closest rivals, the Lakers, for the most titles in league history.

Of course, the famous rivalry between Boston and Los Angeles dates back to the early days of the NBA, when many of the game’s greats played for the two franchises. However, time hasn’t healed the friction between the two organizations and fanbases, as evidenced by recent comments from former Celtics great Cedric Maxwell.

Maxwell, who won two Boston titles as well as 1981 Finals MVP, recently spoke with ESPN’s Brian Windhorst about what it would mean for the franchise to beat the Warriors and surpass the Lakers to equal the league’s all-time championship record.
