After the Boston Celtics were bounced from the opening round of the 2013 playoffs, it was painfully obvious it was time for a rebuild.

Even head coach File Canals, the man at the helm of two NBA Finals appearances and one shining over the previous six periods, started aiming for greener pastures.

By late Summer that year, the Celtics had agreed to deals that would deliver Canals to the LA Clippers and aging stars and future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Robert Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets in a jaw-dropping blockbuster.

Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge then hired 36-year-old college wunderkind Brad Stevens as the team's new head coach, giving him kids stephen curry jersey a six-year deal that underscored the daunting nature of the process that was ahead.

Just a four years after hitting the reset button, the Celtics are coming off a season in which they won an East-best 53 games and search on the cusp of returning to legitimate title contention. How did Boston turn things around so quickly?

Ainge and his front-office staff often overhauled the Celtics' roster, targeting undervalued talent that formed Boston's chip-on-their-shoulder core while also feverishly stockpiling future draft selections. They hit a couple of home runs along the way (Boston is still collecting selections from the Pierce/Garnett change and got All-NBA guard Isaiah Thomas virtually for free thanks to the aftershocks of the Nets blockbuster).

Stevens has compressed every drop of talent out of all the players that have passed through -- and there has been many of them -- and other league, including some of the biggest free agents of the past two summers, took notice of Boston's expedited climb and have in a hurry to join the voyage.

There's a rather hilarious photo from when the Celtics introduced Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries -- the primary player life stephen curry jersey of the loan from the Nets blockbuster -- and only Stevens, a couple weeks into the camouflage jersey job, is smiling. Bogans, who earned an absurd $5 million windfall in order for Boston to maximize a trade omission, and Brooks look like hostages, while Humphries and Ainge seem eager at best.

Boston won just 25 games that season, but Stevens offered a overall look into his ability to maximize talent, turning perimeter NBA player Jordan Crawford into an Eastern Conference Player of the Week in 12 ,. Stevens' first season featured a mere two in-season trades, but Boston's roster overhaul was just warming up.
