Now this is a difficult task. Pick your top 4 Celtics of all time to represent the franchise on a mythical Mt. Rushmore.

One good place to start is the list of retired numbers:

00 Robert Parish

1 Walter Brown

2 Red Auerbach

3 Dennis Johnson

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

21 Bill Sharman

22 Ed Macauley

23 Frank Ramsey

24 Sam Jones

25 KC Jones

31 Cedric Maxwell

32 Kevin McHale

33 Larry Bird

35 Reggie Lewis

MIC ** Johnny Most

You might also consider the soon to be retired numbers of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

Feel free to make up the rules as you like and justify them in the comments. Maybe split the list into eras? Or maybe include coaching and/or GM accomplishments?

The only real rule is that you can only pick 4.
