With famed Boston Celtics Paul Pierce now officially part of the incoming 2021 class and big man Kevin Garnett finally getting his formal induction into Springfield, Massachusetts Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in May of 2021 — nearly a year after getting the nod due to the pandemic — all three members of the so-called “new Big Three” of KG, Pierce and Ray Allen have been ensconced in what serves as the Valhalla of basketball.

But they are far from the only Celtics to be so honored — in fact, there is a veritable host of Boston legends populating the Hoop Hall just a short drive away from the NBA’s titletown, with the Celtics having more such players than any other team in league history.

Let’s take a look at the 40 Celtics who have been honored with a Hall of Fame induction.
