Impressed by the Favourite 20 Songs submit, I believed I’d problem a unique sort of offseason problem. We’ve all heard the Mt. Rushmore debates of biggest Boston Celtics however how about this for a unique twist?
Who’re your high 10 favourite Celtics of all time that had been by no means teammates? This may be your private favorites or maybe the very best group you’ll be able to put collectively.
For instance: In case you choose Invoice Russell, you’ll be able to’t choose anybody he performed with (Cousy, Havlicek, Sam Jones, and so on.).
Since we don’t all have encyclopedia kind recollections, I’m offering you a lookup software to see who has been teammates with who: Basketball Reference
I don’t have a full checklist but as a result of I’m discovering it arduous to go away out among the tent-post gamers in my fandom.
- Invoice Russell
- Dave Cowens (opps, it has been identified to me that Cowens and Chicken had been teammates)
- Larry Chicken
- Paul Pierce
- Isaiah Thomas
- Jayson Tatum
Every of the above had an extended profession that spanned a few years and naturally many teammates. So I’m scratching my head attempting to give you fill-in gamers that may get the checklist as much as 10.
Let’s see, Chicken retired in ‘92 and Pierce was drafted in ‘98, so are there any darkish ages gamers value noting? Perhaps Dino Raja.
Pierce was traded in 2013 and Tatum was drafted in 2017, so which quick timers can I choose from that period? I considered Jared Sullinger however he performed 45 video games with Pierce. See how difficult that is?
The one possibility is to return and take out one of many huge names and fill in with others making a amount vs. high quality dilemma. For example, I might pull Pierce and insert Antoine Walker which might liberate somebody like Kevin Garnett.
Like I stated, I’m nonetheless engaged on my checklist, however please be at liberty to share yours! I promise I gained’t steal your concepts (be aware: I’ll completely steal your concepts).
