NBA continues reveal of 75 greatest player list; 7 Boston Celtics represented

·1 min read

The Boston Celtics continue among the best-represented teams on the NBA’s commemorative list of the 75 greatest players in as many years. The league is publishing the list as part of the hype of it reaching the three-quarter century mark, and it is doing so in three 25-player bursts.

On the second day of the league’s celebratory listmaking reveal, the Celtics find themselves with seven players selected from their historic rosters. Boston dominated the 50th-anniversary list a quarter-century ago and seems poised to have a similar proportion of players once the whole list has been released.

Let’s take a look at which Celtics made the second 25-player list.
