The Boston Celtics measure greatness primarily in banners and other accolades, but that is not the only way to measure the greatness of an individual player. The Celtics have been graced with some of the most skilled talents to ever pick up the game throughout their seven and half decades of existence, and as the NBA celebrates its own players’ greatness, sooner or later one may find the question of which players were the most skilled to play for the Celtics in the storied franchise’s history.

In a recent episode of the CLNS Media podcast “Celtics Beat,” hosts Evan Valenti and Adam Kaufman discussed this particular question with a Boston great in his own right, Hall of Fame forward Cedric Maxwell.

The trio debate whether Kevin Garnett and Kyrie Irving were the most talented Celtics to play for Boston, as well as some of the thornier issues related to that discussion.
