    Honorable mention Never Nervous Pervis Ellison. I think he played in like 10 games in 3 season due to injuries.

    Didn't George Gervin play on the worst Celtics team ever? A team which also featured Sidney Wicks, Curtis Rowe and a very young cornbread maxwell. Talk about historically bad. That was about the worst team I ever had the displeasure of watching.

    I'm pretty sure the iceman served his time at the garden. Artis Gilmore was the only guy who couldn't move who served in the pivot at the garden. Tongue out

    George Gervin never played for the Celtics.

    I hate to say this, but THE All-Time biggest disappointment for all of us - a name that could not be spoken in my house for 10 years - ladies and gentlemen, the highest pick the Celtics ever had (tied with Russ), #2 - Len Bias!!

    The curse of Len Bias. Tell me about it, that one was real. We didn't win again until we brought in KG. I could have sworn that the iceman played in boston, but I just looked it up and I'm wrong. Probably won't be the last time that happens. Did the iceman go to Buffalo in the franchise trade?

    ha, duke! that's gonna be the immortal lieutenant pembroke burroughs of the florida highway patrol. with a reputation as an outstanding trooper, at some point burroughs was unable to attend a botched raid on a child pornography ring in virginia and deputy shaquille o'neal took his place. oh, yeah.

    do we agree that sam vincent wasn't a bad player, but who's a better choice for such a list?

    Eric Montross played at North Carolina, baby (not OSU).  He won a national title with the Heels (1992-1993) season and was a two-time all American.  Alas, he never reached his pro potential.

    His death was a very sad day for all Celtics fans and changed the outlook of this team for many years.

    Right again Bailey.....I got to meet Artis Gilmore once and we had a few laughs regarding Pembroke Burroughs III....by the way, Gilmore is the tallest dude I've ever met and very friendly....Cedrick Maxwell is the funniest guy I've ever met...truly a good guy!  ....and yes, Vincent was pretty good but a little disappointing...

    gervin NEVER played for us.  RIGOR ARTIS played one year as parish's backup.  he was generally calcified and horrible @ 38 years old.  can't really consider that a bust so much.  but dominique @ 34 was supposed to have SOMETHING left for us!

    In Response to Re: Celtics all-time 1st Team Disappointments : 'Nique in '95 17.8 ppg 5.2 rpg 2.2 apg 42% FG and 39% 3FG at age 35 Not much diff from Ray age 32-34, only obv not on 3's 'Nique had Dino, Fox and Sherm   Ray had KG, Pierce and Rondo Of course he averaged 29.1 per in the last 25 games of the season before coming to Boston.

    yabbut, it took like 30 games for nique to throw his first dunk down in a green uniform.  the decline was shocking.  his 17.8 was a weak 17.8.  he did get it together for a couple of playoff games but it was too late.  nique was washed up WAAAAY more than we thought when we signed him- we were probably thinking strong 20+ ppg and we got weak, almost non-dunking 17.8.  ray is imminently more effective as third gun as nique was as FIRST GUN.

    rameakap, man u take me back. 

    I didnt understand a lot of moves made in the 90s and early 00s.

    I will say this, the Celtics really need to draft well and have some stars come from within like Bird, Pierce and Rondo.  it is nice to trade for veterans, but most of the time they are on thier downside when we get them.
