My all-time #1 Celtics highlight that I've ever witnessed in person

This happened five years ago tomorrow, March 5th, 2008.  Boston would go on to win the title that season, after knocking off the Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals.  Rajon Rondo was in just his second NBA season, and his first as a starter.  At the time he was viewed as potentially the Celtics weakest link; he was still unproven as a point guard.  As I watched this game from my seat in Section 8 at the Garden, I remember thinking Rondo was becoming my favorite player.  Then all of a sudden he did this, and there was no longer any doubt:

The thing about this play that continues to amaze me is that he decided he was going to dunk the ball before he even crossed half court.
