The top three are in the books. Russell, Bird, and Havlicek are at the top and it is getting harder and harder to differentiate between the next group of deserving Celtics greats. But that, of course, is part of the fun. So make your case and debate away (respectfully of course).
Based on comments in past polls, I made sure to include Sam Jones. As usual, please feel free to point out anyone else I may have missed in the comments. Also, feel free to post your own personal top 5 or 10.
Note: It will be interesting to see when Paul Pierce wins one of these things. I think based on recent voting it will be soon. You can debate this, but I tend to think he'll go higher than he actually deserves because he's recent in our minds (not to mention the only point of reference for a younger generation).
