Who are the best international players to play for the Boston Celtics?

The Boston Celtics are a storied ball club for more reasons than just their titles, having also been a trailblazing team in terms of signing and playing players from all over the world starting as early as their first season of existence. From Charlie Hoefer to Alaa Abdenaby to Rick Fox to Kristaps Porzingis, there has been no shortage of players who were born abroad who have worn the green and white.

But who were the best of them, and who were the worst? And what criteria should we be using to judge them across eras? In the spirit of the annual arrival of #RankingSeason, the thing to do is try.

And try the hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” did on a recent episode.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear how they assessed the international Celtics of all time.
