Russell
Bird
Havlicek
Cousy
Cowens
Sam Jones
McHale

He is either before or after Parish

Parish

100% agree. And Sam Jones may have been one of the most under-rated players in NBA history.

How far is he away from that achievement and what rank is he now?

You're not that new to this site, so you should know LKizzle is a dumb Pierce hater. He's been hating on Pierce since he joined. Don't take him seriously.

he is 3rd behind Bird and Hondo
I believe he is on pace to pass Bird by next year and he is about 6 000 points away from Hondo.

My bad. My memory is fading. However I absolutely do remember, Bob Ryan saying "It was the quietest 40 point game in NBA history. I think you just corrected us both.

There is no way based on the metrics of the modern game that Bob Cousy is one of the top 25 players in NBA history.

However, you bring up an important key player and often a forgotten man in Robert Parish. He was among the most underrated players of his era, and is definitely in the discussion for any all time great Celtics list.

NOt the same thing. After the game you always walked away saying Magic was great. WIth Silky you say he was good then you look in the box score and see he had 40 and you say what.

using your logic of today's "Metrics" a today player like JR Smith is better than Elgin Baylor. Sounds silly doesn't it. Look at Baylor's body of work compared to Smith"s. Cousy has accomplished more in his career than any PG in the last 15 years .Can PP say that in any category?

What is "today's metrics," that old time players suck? In that case, the record book from pre-1980 shouldn't even matter since these players don't fit in with "today's metrics."

Steve Blake is better than Oscar Robertson easily right?

Top 7 right now but hes stays with them a few more years he will be the longest celtic ever, so hes climbing as we speak, hes really the only true celtic on the team and many people forget how good he was some time ago.

As PP is approaching the end of his career, is it safe to say he's a top 5 Celtic all-time? Where would you place him?

I'd place him 4th, behind Russell, Bird and Havlicek...
