2. Tony Allen – 2004, Round 1, Pick 24

Quite impressive how Allen has carved out his NBA-career without being able to hit a jumper. Allen helped clamp down on Lebron James during the Eastern Conference Finals during the Celtics title run and he was a classy Lance Stephenson before Lance was even old enough to vote. Since then he has become a staple in the Memphis community as part of their GRIT N’ Grind mantra. Any team would be lucky to have Tony on their squad for what he brings both on the court and in the locker room and Celtics fans will always be gratefully for the effort he brought every night.
