50. Chris Ford

Chris Ford played most of his career with the Detroit Pistons before he was traded to Boston and the Shooting Guard would still have a lot left for his second and final NBA team.

Ford played nearly four years for the Celtics and would average 10.3 Points and was the backup Shooting Guard on Boston's 1981 NBA Championship Team.  In terms of NBA history, he is credited with scoring the first ever three-point shot when that was legal in the NBA.  That in itself can be worth an all-time franchise rank.
