I'm on top of the world," shouted NBA Defensive Player of the Year Kevin Garnett, after the Boston Celtics clinched their league-leading 17th NBA championship over their archrival, the Kobe Bryant-led Los Angeles Lakers.

In Top of the World , Peter May chronicles the remarkable 2008 championship run of the team in green--their first in over twenty years. With the greatest single-season turnaround in NBA history, the Celtics went from the second-worst record last year to the best record this year. May charts the pivotal moments: from losing out on the Number 1 and Number 2 pick in last year's draft lottery to swinging trades for future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen; from winning Game 4 of the Finals with oneof the greatest come-from-behind victories in NBA Finals history to capping off their remarkable season with another championship banner.
