I think he's in the top 5, would be higher given conditions others had.

Man Sam Jones made more game-winner shots in the playoffs than Paul Pierce in his entire career.

It's:

Russ
Larry legend
Hondo/Jones
Hondo/Jones
Davey Cowens
Paul Pierce

He's an awesome player, he's clutch, he brought a ring to Boston, he stayed in the good and the bad times and is the celtics 2nd all time scorer.
Wow what a resume..

Larry Bird was from another planet and Russell won 11(eleven) rings. Beside those two I don't think there is another Celtic who is clear cut better than Paul. (Havlicek maybe? I really don't know him as a player)

13 posts in and only one mention of Kevin McHale?

The guy would have averaged 25/10, if he played on those terrible Celtic teams.

Havilcek is much better than Pierce. He has him in nearly everything. Hondo is regarded as one of the 15 best players of all time. He was ranked 12th on the all time list in Simmons' book. He's just on a whole new level. He's a legend.

McHale is another choice. He was offensively more devastating, tougher to stop, had a better arsenal of moves and was defensively better. Sure, he didn't have as successful career as Pierce, but he did achieve well. His peak is also better and was more tougher.

Cowens is debatable.
