After Reggie Lewis’ shocking passing and Kevin McHale’s retirement, a new crop of Celtics players took on leadership positions during the 1993-94 season. Kevin Gamble, Sherman Douglas, Rick Fox and Dino Radja, who made the All-Rookie Second Team, stepped into starring roles. Thankfully, familiar faces helped guide the young stars as Larry Bird joined the front office and Dennis Johnson became an assistant coach. In that transitional and emotional campaign, the Celtics struggled to 32 wins and missed the playoffs.
