Not in Hall of Fame

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2021-22 revision of our top 50 Boston Celtics.

As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2.  Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA. 

3.  Playoff accomplishments.

4.  Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Please note, that this is our first revision in three years, and despite the legends who have suited up in Boston green, we have four new entries and one slight elevation.

As always, we present our top five immediately, though nothing has changed in this upper-tier.

1. Bill Russell

2. Larry Bird

3. John Havlicek

4. Bob Cousy

5. Paul Pierce

You can find the entire list here.

Jayson Tatum, a two-time All-Star and a Third Team All-NBA Selection last year enters at #30.  

Jaylen Brown, an All-Star last year, comes in at #37.

Two players who are now no longer Celtics, Daniel Theis and Kemba Walker, debut at #46 and #49 respectively.

Marcus Smart moved up from #38 to #35.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
