That's a bold statement, given their history.

Who rounds out your top 5, and who misses the cut?

I've seen this topic discussed on different boards multiple times... The consensus top 6 is(in no order), Bird, Russel, Hondo, Cousey, Pierce and McHale. I'd put Pierce over McHale and Cousey based on longevity and career statistics.

Pierce ranks anywhere from 5-8. What bodes well for him is that he is in the top 5 in many of the statistical categories but obviously in Boston players are rated via Championships. So another ring could really help ensure his legacy currently I think I would have him in the all time Celtics starting line up though that doesn't necessarily make you a top 5 Celtic.

Russell
McHale
Bird
Pierce
Cousy

Bench
Cowens
Heinsohn
Hondo

Right now, borderline top 5 I would say. I see him in group of McHale, Parish, Cowens and Cousy fighting for 4th and 5th spot. Russell, Bird and Hondo are locks for me.
IMO opinion, after retirement he will be 4th best Celtic.

I don't know why his nickname is Hondo, but I know I use it because it's easier to spell than "Havlikek".

Oh yeah, definitely. I'd easily put Cousy, Russell, Havlicek, and Bird ahead of Pierce. I guess there could be a debate once you get past those four, but not with those four.

I don't think it is. Or at least it won't be by the time he retires as long as he stays a Celtic until he retires. He's giong to be #2 guaranteed in Celtic scoring all-time. Possibly #1 if he plays another 5-ish years.

If Paul Pierce becomes the Celtics # 1 scorer, I'm going to cry for 100 nights.
