Do you value their chip production over Ray/Rondo/Toine individual production...I think if the definition is "great" you have to include team success in the matrix, and therefore KC and DJ are in.
Reggie Lewis should be there. Len Bias would have been there.KG and DJ belong on that list. Max and Ainge are about even but Max was great when he was healthy.Edit: Sharman belongs over everyone else I can think of.

Cedric Maxwell was one of the foundations of the 80's teams. He played for 8 seasons in Boston, "Wiggle." Max also carried the team in the '81 finals and he, along with Parish and McHale won game 7 vs the Lakers in 1984.My final 4 would be Max, Garnett, Dennis Johnson and Paul Silas.Yes, Paul Silas. As great as those 70's team were, they did not win a title until Silas got there and did not win again after he left.I look at Paul Silas as a power forward version of Dennis Johnson and Cowens loved playing alongside him.
When are they announcing the 15?
Tier 1Bird, Russell, HavlicekTier 2Cousy, Cowens, McHale, PierceTier 3S. Jones, White, ParishTier 4Tommy, Sanders, DJ, KG, ToineI think that is my list. At least the top 2 players from every title and then guys that played a longer time or had great success. I had a real hard time with that last spot, but went with Toine because I always loved Toine. It will probably be Lewis as a result of his untimely death (or Rondo for recency bias), but for me I went with Toine's 8 seasons over Lewis' 6.
