The folks over at our parent site, USA TODAY Sports, continue with their projections for the NBA’s 75 greatest players to be released in honor of the league’s 75th anniversary, expanding on (and likely culling some of) the commemorative list for the Association’s 50th anniversary.
And while you will need a subscription to see the full USA TODAY list with all the context it provides, we extracted the Boston Celtics from the article released today covering players 50 through 26 on the list. While not quite as ubiquitous as the prior edition, there is still a very strong representation of the Celtics in this section of USA TODAY’s list.
Let’s take a look at where they ranked the four Celtics that fell in their estimation of this section of the league’s 75 greatest to grace the hardwood.
Once again, the boys in green and white dominate. https://t.co/eQkQiUBp49
