Hi,
Felger is a moron who should stick to football. But even in football he's a moron, IMO, because he tried to rip apart Patricia for wearing a t-shirt with Goodell with a clown nose, also he criticized him for having a beard and being fat (according to Felger no team'd hire Patrcia as a coach because of that).
Oy wey...

Nice to have a team with such a deep history of star players that you can even debate Pierce being in the top 5 or not.

Are there any guide lines to help in the selection process.

It's total bullshit. After Russell and Bird, its difficult to discriminate between players like Pierce, Hondo, Cowens, McHale etc. There stats don't provide a clear answer, so it basically comes down to subjectivity, and you could make cases for any of them. Felger is just being provocative. Its a pretty douchey move on his part if you ask me, considering we just signed Pierce so he could retire a Celtic.

Swish,
You can't use stats or websites to make your selections. Forget about eras. Visualize all of the great Celtics that you have seen over all these decades. Close your eyes. Who do you see as the first person you want on your team? Select that person with no doubts. Don't think about it. Trust yourself. Don't judge. Just select who you feel the best players are/were. Don't change the order or revise it before you feel you are finished. Then revise if you must but share both.

  Taking your advice. Here are the 5 that I want on my starting team to play in any era.

 Forwards - Bird and Garnett
 Center - Parish
 Guards - Archibald and Allen

 Top 2 subs: Kevin McHale and Paul pierce.

Pierce may not have been one of the all time Celtics best players, but he sure was pretty darned good when he was in a Cs uniform.

Tough to be top five on a historic franchise with so many titles, but that is not Pierce's fault, and think how much better he would have been if he had had the opportunity to play with some of those other great Cs guys besides just with Garnett for only a couple of seasons. Playing next to Antoine Walker did very little for Pierce as far as winning games.
