Thursday November 5 ,2009
Blogger Black buzz has played and coached basketball for the last thirty five years and he has been a keen student of the professional basketball since 1952. Here are my selections for my All Time Starting Boston Celtic Team :
POINT GUARD : BOB COUSY , BEST PURE POINT GUARD TO EVER PLAY THE GAME, THE CONSUMMATE HOUDINI.
SHOOTING GUARD: SAM JONES, A WARRIOR WITH THE BASKETBALL , MR. CLUTCH, AND ONE OF THE TOP FIFTY PLAYERS TO EVER PLAY IN THE NBA.
CENTER : BILL RUSSELL, ARGUABLY BEST CENTER TO EVER PLAY THE GAME.NONE OF TODAY'S CENTER'S CAN COMPARE TO BIG BILL,THEY AREN'T EVEN CLOSE.
SMALL FORWARD: LARRY BIRD, BEST ALL AROUND FORWARD IN NBA HISTORY AND ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS TO EVER PLAY THE GAME. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A FORWARD WHO COULD PASS THE BALL AS WELL AS BIRD, AND HE WAS THE GREATEST FOUL SHOOTER IN THE GAME. Sorry Rick B. and Calvin M.
POWER FORWARD: KEVIN McHALE, CHARLES BARKLEY SAID Mc HALE WAS THE TOUGHEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER HE EVER PLAYED AGAINST,AND KEVIN WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST POST-UP PLAYERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA. McHALE IS ALSO ONE OF THE FIFTY GREATEST PLAYERS IN NBA HISTORY.
I could have put John Hondo Havlicek at starting shooting guard, but I didn't , but that has absolutely nothing to with his talents for Hondo was one of the greatest players in NBA history, and he proudly wore the famous Kelly Green and White.
