If - and that's IF - the Celtics win their 18th banner, where would the team's rolling rally be? That's not known yet, but its worth taking a look at the history of rolling rally championship parades in Boston.

The Boston Celtics won their 17th NBA championship against the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008. The winning game was on a Tuesday, and the rolling rally was held on Thursday.

The parade started "at the TD Garden and (went) past City Hall and Boston Common before ending at Copley Square in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood," according to the Brockton Enterprise.

In 2011, the Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks to win the Stanley Cup in game 7. The winning game was on a Wednesday and the championship parade rolled through the streets of Boston the following Saturday.

The Patriot Ledger reported that in 2011, the duck boats (packed with Bruins players) started at TD Garden and proceeded down Causeway Street and onto Cambridge Street. The rally continued on to Tremont Street before taking a right on Boylston Street, ending at Copley Square in Boston.
