Boston Celtics: #NBArank

Celtics on 2013 #NBArank

September, 17, 2013
For the third straight year, and the TrueHoop Network are ranking every NBA player -- and counting them down on Twitter (@ESPNNBA) from No. 500 to No. 1. This year, ESPN asked its forecast panel to predict the overall level of play for each player for the upcoming NBA season. This includes both the quality and the quantity of his expected contributions, combined in one overall rating.

Here's a look at the Celtics players unveiled thus far (we'll update this post as the full list is unveiled):

415: Donte Green - 2.41 (2012: 336)
439: Phil Pressey - 2.25 (2012: NR)
481: Vitor Faverani - 1.92 (2012: NR)

#NBArank: Joseph at No. 467

August, 18, 2012
AM ET and the TrueHoop Network are ranking every NBA player -- and counting them down on Twitter (@NBAonESPN), from No. 500 to No. 1. Celtics rookie Kris Joseph gets the typical second-round pick treatment and is the first Boston player to debut at No. 467 (with a 1.99 ranking). That should provide just another dose of motivation for the 51st overall pick in this summer's draft.

Some of Boston's former second-round picks like E'Twaun Moore (414th, 2.46 rating) and Lester Hudson (468, 1.97) are also part of the 400+ club, as is departed big man Sean Williams (428, 2.32).

One rating sure to draw heavy Boston interest (and maybe even some debate), Brian Scalabrine lands at No. 487 with a 1.76 rating.
