ESPN’s Tim Bontemps picks his all-time Boston Celtics starting five
When it comes to all-time great players, the Boston Celtics have had no shortage over their seven-plus decades of storied history.
From Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Tommy Heinsohn and KC Jones to Paul Silas and Jo Jo White all the way up to Larry Bird, Robert Parish and Kevin McHale, there has been an embarrassment of riches for Celtics fans to enjoy over the decades. And that’s not even considering more recent Hall of Famers such as Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett! So, the mental exercise of coming up with an all-time starting five for Boston is no easy task.
But ESPN reporter Tim Bontemps tackled the project, coming up with his own five greatest Celtics for posterity’s sake.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they are, and see if they line up with the five greats you would pick yourself.
