The Celtics are a team rich in history, with 17 NBA championships to their name they have some top players in each position here we list the top 5 point guards in Celtics history and would love to hear any thoughts.
1. Bob Cousy
Stats (Peak years): 19.1 PPG, 5 RPG, 8.5 APG
Cousy played along side Bill Russell and created the greatest Celtics dynasty there has ever been. he was capable in every facet of the game and truly is the best point guard in Celtics history.
2. Jo Jo White
Stats (Peak Years): 21.3 PPG, 5.4 APG, 5.3 RPG
Having spent a year in the military, White was a very resilient NBA player, he played in 488 games in a row. He was a great point guard in the second great era for the Celtics and deserves to be this high on the list.
3. Rajon Rondo
Stats (Peak Years): 12.2 PPG, 10.8 APG, 4.5 RPG
A part of the 2008 NBA championship team, Rondo was for years one of the best passing and defensive point guards in the NBA. He was a part of a big four that kept the Celtics close to the top of the NBA for many years.
4. Dennis Johnson
Stats (Peak Years): 14.9 PPG, 6.7 APG, 3.6 RPG
A part of the 80’s Celtics teams, he was not quite the passer that Rajon Rondo was, but he was a better scorer and he played with Larry Bird. He was a big part of those Celtics teams that won 2 titles in the 80’s with him.
5. Nate Archibald
Stats (Peak Years): 13.6 PPG, 8 APG, 48.5 FG%
When “Tiny” was on the Celtics he was not his best self, but he still delivered a title for the C’s and that puts him at the bottom of this top 5 point guards in Celtics history.
