My first enduring memory is being at the 1981 championship parade, and the famous "Moses eats #?%#" chant and followup line by Larry.

2002 ECF Game 3 against the Nets. Pierce nineteen point outburst was just amazing.

My first memories of intense C's fandom was after the Russell dynasty and at the start of the Hondo/JoJo/Cowens era. Around 1970. 

My best childhood C's memory was actually as a senior in HS in 1976 listening to the C's-Suns triple OT game in my car with my HS friends. For some reason we left whoever's house we were at in the 4th to get pizza, figuring we'd listen to Johnny the rest of the game.  We ended up sitting in the car outside the pizza place listening to all 3 OTs.  Can't remember if we ever got pizza.

I was there too, and that was an all time classic moment.

My earliest distinct memory is also listening to the triple OT game on the radio in my parent's bedroom.  My Dad was at the game and it was wayyyyyy past my bedtime,but there was no way I was going to sleep without knowing the result.

I have vague memories of some games before then (I think I even went to a few, but that's definitely the first distinct memory).

This one might date me a bit  8)

Buffalo vs Celtics, first game of season in 1973. I remember as a kid being blown away by watching a few players named Cowens, Havilicek and Silas and watching them beat some noob named McAdoo

Funny note on this is that I won a $100 bet years later in a bar with friend who swore and was positive their was never a team in Buffalo. That was an easy bet to win for me that night.

I went to a Braves game as a young kid too.  I remember being impressed with Randy Smith.

I started very young as a Celtic fan, but my first vivid memory is Bird falling and hitting his head in the playoffs vs the pacers only to come back and torture chuck person...

Me too!  I can't remember specifics, but there were some really awful cards in that set.

started with game of against ATL. This game was the first real memory just because I knew the history even as a new fan and my cousin from Lala land was watching with me. The look of utter disappointment on his face made that night.  ;D

my first post since getting disgusted with too many "fans" posting negatives on here

tp to all the older fans!
buffalo braves and no one mentions ernie D

my first memory is the season of '76 as both my parents loved the celtics, my first celtics' guys were 2 players who weren't the biggest or best at their posistions but outworked everyone hondo and cowens
was lucky enough to see that cowens intensity with hondo work ethic be morphed in larry birds rookie season

thanks, back to lurking

I had a bit of an obsession...i was 10 when Bird retired and I have 256 Larry Bird cards with no doubles...

the one I have always wanted but never got my hands on is his rookie card...
