50. Brian Scalabrine

Scal! Fans of the Boston Celtics in the 2000’s loved Brian Scalabrine. He spent just five seasons in Boston from 2005 through 2010, but was a clear fan favorite. Anytime White Mamba entered the game at home in TD Garden, the place went crazy. Scal played just 13.1 minutes per game, averaging 2.7 points per game. He was a member of the 2008 NBA Championship team and makes this list as a teammate in the locker room not based on his individual numbers.

49. Al Horford

Al Horford has yet to complete a season as a member of the Celtics, but he seems to have it all figured out. So far in 2017, he is averaging 14.6 points a game with 6.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists. Horford has allowed the C’s to spread the floor, with the ability to knock down the occasional three-pointer. Horford will have the chance to improve his Boston stock as he remains a Celtic and hopefully brings a title to the city.
