Which Boston Celtics Who Missed The NBA’s 50th Anniversary Greatest Players List Might Make The 75th?

It seems as if a fever for projecting the players who will make the list of the NBA’s 75 greatest to play the game in honor of hitting the three-quarter century mark this season is spreading across the wider NBA media sphere.

With everyone — including USA TODAY — attempting to prognosticate which players will be added to the league’s 50-man 50th-anniversary list as well as those who will be cut from that earlier take, there’s been plenty of speculation on which players may be elevated to that list of honor. Here at the Celtics Wire, we’ve already dipped our toes in, guessing which former Boston Celtics might not make it from the first list to the second.

But there’s also a number of Celtics who may well join the new list who were omitted from the version created 25 years ago, or rose to prominence since. Let’s take a look at who might make the new list.
