1. Rondo
2. PP
3. KG
4. AB
5. Sully
non-celtics don't matter but I'll always wish former C's the best (provided they don't play for the Heat or Lakers)

All time: Bird, Mchale, Reggie, Antoine and begrudgingly, Magic (hated his guts as a Laker but [dang] he was something to see.  couldn't stand Jordan once he started getting the star treatment--he was good enough to be incredible without the special treatment and that ruined it for me)

hmm, that seems the equivalent of saying stamp glue tastes better than chocolate  or generic beer is preferable to Sam Adams but to each their own I guess

Non Celtics (and former C's):

Kyrie Irving, Joakim Noah, Zach Randolph, Tyson Chandler, James Harden maybe.....not really sure who else. Honestly its painful watching Super Stars get so many calls that the refs make me dislike them more. They already have enough of an advantage being great that they don't need to be baby'd around on the court as well.

  • Let's Go Celtics!
1.) Rondo
2.) Durant
3.) KG
4.) Andre Iguodala
5.) Tyson Chandler (he just does so many little things)

HM: Josh Smith, Steph Curry, Monta Ellis, Marc Gasol
Quote
Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

Probably forgot somebody but aside from the big 3:

1. Tony Allen
2. Andre Iguodala
3. Grant Hill
4. Louis Williams
5. Chauncey Billups
7. Chris Andersen

I guess Ben Wallace isn't still in the league huh?  If Powe was he'd be number 1.  If you couldn't tell I'm a huge hustle/toughness/swagger/defense guy. 

Oh yeah, I gotta shout out to Dirk too.  I'm a sucker for anything German.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale
