Community Rankings: Best Celtics Ever

Time to dive into the history books and start debating pointless but fun arguments over which of our favorite Celtics were better than the rest.  You are going to rank the top Celtics from 1 to 23 (or whenever we decide to stop).  

The pool of players I've chosen is the retired numbers list plus the current Big 3 (Pierce, KG, and Allen).  I excluded coaches, owners, Rondo (too early), and Antoine (just because).  If anyone feels like I've missed someone important, please feel free to tell me in the comments and I'd be happy to update.

For now, let us start at the top.  Who's the best Celtic ever?  For brevity purposes, I'm including only a select few.

See the full list after the break.
