Community Rankings: 3rd Best Celtic Ever

New, comments

The top 2 Celtics players ever were kind of obvious. There might have been some minor debate over the order of the first two, but Bill Russell and Larry Bird are two of the top players in the league, never mind the Celtics.

Now things get more interesting. The catalog of names is truly staggering. Havlicek, Cousy, Heinsohn, Cowens, McHale, Parish, Pierce, ...the list just goes on and on. But there can be only one... 3rd best player. Who is it?

Full list after the jump:

00 Robert Parish
3 Dennis Johnson
5 Kevin Garnett
6 Bill Russell
10 JoJo White
14 Bob Cousy
15 Tom Heinsohn
16 Tom Sanders
17 John Havlicek
LOSCY Jim Loscutoff
18 Dave Cowens
19 Don Nelson
20 Ray Allen
21 Bill Sharman
22 Ed Macauley
23 Frank Ramsey
24 Sam Jones
25 KC Jones
31 Cedric Maxwell
32 Kevin McHale
33 Larry Bird
34 Paul Pierce
35 Reggie Lewis
