In this story:

The Boston Celtics beat the Dallas Mavericks, 106-88, in Game 5 on Monday night to win their league-best 18th NBA championship and their first title since Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen won one in 2008.

Boston's four major sports teams have had quite a run in the 2000s, with the Celtics winning two titles, the Red Sox winning four World Series, the Bruins winning a Stanley Cup, and the Patriots winning six Super Bowls all since 2001.

Speaking of the Patriots, Tom Brady had some fun celebrating the Celtics' win by tweeting a perfect four-word message about the city of Boston adding another championship to its résumé.

Not a bad run for the city.

Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics won a franchise-best 18th NBA title on Monday.
