Will KG, Russell or Pierce Make the Final Four?

With the NCAA Tournament around the corner, March Madness has officially begun. Brackets will soon be distributed at a rapid pace, sending millions of hoops fans into a frenzy over matchups, potential upsets and Cinderella stories.

But the Madness need not apply solely to college basketball. Imagine a one-on-one “Sweet 16” tournament consisting of the best individual NBA players in Boston Celtics history.

Who would prevail in a four-round, single-elimination slug-fest of the Garden's most prolific stars of all time? Would early-era legends like Russell assert their dominance against the greats of the 1980s and 2000s?

Celtics fans who embrace rankings and matchups can have some fun with this bracket. All seeds reflect each player's specific level of performance during their tenure in Boston, as well as their individual impact on the franchise. The available pool consists of players who spent at least five seasons with the Celts.

Each pairing of players in their primes will be analyzed, hypothetically determining the victor of a standard one-on-one game up to 21.  The first round will reveal the field of 16, which will then be narrowed down to the “Elite Eight” and the “Final Four.” The last slide, of course, will unveil the champion of the Celtics all-time one-on-one tournament.
