QUIZ - Celtics who won scoring titles with other teams.

■ QUIZ: No Celtic has won an NBA scoring title, but the C’s have had six players who won the scoring title before coming to Boston. Can you name them, without Google?

Celtics who won scoring titles with other teams.

Pistol Pete.  Dave Bing.  Dominique, Tiny Archibald,

Can't quite come up with the other 2.  But some possibilities might be Shaq, KG, Steph Marbury, Artis Gilmore, Willie Naulls.  Walton never led the league in scoring, did he?  Or DJ?

I came up with Archibald, Wilkins and O'neal, then went to Basketball Reference to get the 6 players.

Just read this.....being I watched a hell of a lot of games when he played in Buffalo even had a preseason camp at my college SUNY Geneseo on year John Y Brown got him cause his wife wanted him ( i'm pretty sure thats the way the story went. Red damn new left us do to the fiasco of the late 70's)

Anyway Bob McAdoo is the final answer.

I'd get back to the dorm after a game and it was rarely the question Did the Braves win but rather did McAdoo get 40.

some further research reveals that KG led the league in points in 2003-2004 -- although he did not have the highest average (McGrady)

Hi Birnam,

Haven't seen you around much. In fact, you joined in 2009 but this is only your 2nd post.

KG, 82 games. McGrady 67. Big difference between KG's 24.2ppg average and T-Mac's 28.

Nice to see you.

Hey Bob -- Yeah, that's true. I have not exactly been tearing it up with posts. But I have greatly enjoyed lurking on the board for years. And I am a seasoned vet regarding Celtics history. I first became a fan in the last year or two of Cousy's career.

Although I have retired from the hobby -- years ago I collected old games (mainly the Celtics and Jordan) on tape (later, DVD). I have an incredible collection of old Celtics games (hundreds and hundreds) going back to the Russell era.

In fact, this is what facilitated my acquaintance with the legendary "Sam," Dick Dorr. Dick purchased some games from me, and we had a couple of awesome, detailed conversations about the old Celtics. He sent me the "short story" he had written about his experiences with the old Celtics, I believe specifically with the 1969 championship team.

Dick also endeared himself to me with a splendid piece he wrote, the theme of which was what a phony person Lebron James is. I thought I was the only one who held that opinion. I believe I saved that piece, and I will try to find it.

Anyway -- this will up my post count to 3, and I will try to do better than 2 posts in the next 9 years.

birnam,

You are not the only one who thinks Lebron is a phony-baloney. Many here also hold that opinion.

Please feel free to post your thoughts and memories here, I am sure they will be appreciated!!

We also have a usually active and lively Game On! thread here as well. It's bound to become even more active and lively, now that the playoffs approach. All are welcome.

I became a Celtic fan in 1948 (age 16) and I'm always looking to obtain videos of those hard to come by early nba games. I currently have 4 videos - all playoff games involving the Celts - vs the 63 Lakers, 64 Warriors, 66 Royals and the 67 Sixers. Its great to be able to go back in time to reinforce memories of those early years. My interest in the nba is not limited to the Celtics. The nostalgia of watching those hero's of the past perform has given me many hours of viewing pleasure.
