Boston Celtics, 1968-69

1970: Did not make playoffs, finished sixth in Eastern Division with 34-48 record.

Bid for the 3-peat: Bill Russell retired as both player and coach after the 1969 championship, Sam Jones followed K.C. Jones into retirement, and what Pat Riley to this day calls the NBA only true dynasty effectively was over, with the New York Knicks winning the 1970 championship.
