The Celtics took shape in the year 1946, and their goal to be a part of the NBA was achieved during 1949's fall season, after the merger of the BAA and the National Basketball League to form the NBA. The Celtics turned out to be the pioneering franchise that drafted an Afro-American player, signing Chuck Cooper, in 1950.
