When you have the most championships in NBA history, not everybody is going to like you.

Sporting News derived a list of the 23 most hated players ever — and four former Celtics had the privilege of making the cut. They are:

23. Bob Brannum — 7.3 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.1 apg

20. Kevin McHale — 17.9 pgg, 7.3 rpg, 1.7 apg

11. Kevin Garnett — 17.8 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 3.7 apg

8. Danny Ainge — 11.5 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 4.0 apg
