He won 11 titles with the Boston Celtics, including an incredible eight in a row from 1959 to 1966, and took home five MVP awards.
He’s is perhaps the greatest defensive player in league history but is also famous for his leadership with the Celtics. He went on to coach, and is a staple today in all NBA circles and one of the most respected NBA legends of all time.
