75th Anniversary All-Celtics Team Announced – NBA Blog


As the 17-time World Champion Boston Celtics continue their season-long celebration to commemorate their 75th anniversary as an NBA team, the franchise today revealed the complete roster for its 75th Anniversary All-Celtics Team.

Fifteen Celtics legends, as determined by thousands of votes from fans, media members, and historians were selected for the All-Celtics Team. More than thirty media members and historians, selected for their expertise, knowledge, and experience with and around the franchise, comprised 50% of the All-Celtics Team’s final weighted voting. Fans accounted for the remaining 50% of the voting.

The fifteen players selected are: Ray Allen, Larry Bird, Bob Cousy, Dave Cowens, Kevin Garnett, John Havlicek, Tommy Heinsohn, Dennis Johnson, Sam Jones, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish, Paul Pierce, Bill Russell, Bill Sharman, and Jo Jo White. Each member of the team has been elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and the group combined has a total of 64 championships as players with the Boston Celtics. Players from each of the team’s NBA-best 17 World Champion teams are represented.

“Considering how many world class players have worn a Celtics uniform, selecting our all-time team is yet another reminder of the incredible legacy and singular place in the NBA that the franchise holds,” said Celtics President Rich Gotham. “Our organization thanks all the fans and media who participated in the selection process.”
