Today's question:
Who are the best passers in Celtics history?


We previously asked for a Quarantine Question of the Day, Who are the best ball handlers in Celtics history? Some people mistakenly took that question as "best point guard" when it was really about ball handling and not passing or the overall point guard position. Most of those people were on Twitter and Facebook admittedly and probably just responded to the title and didn't read the post. "Those people!" Ha.

So today's question also isn't limited to just point guards and again their ball handling skills aren't part of the equation. The first players that come to mind for me are Bob Cousy who I'm tempted to put first, Rajon Rondo, Larry Bird and Pistol Pete Maravich. The latter of course only played briefly for the Celtics late in his career, so I can understand not including him..

Looking for some unique answers as well since it's not just the overall best. Maybe a Tiny Archibald, Dennis Johnson or Bill Walton? Or what about some players more likely to appear in tb727's What the Hell Happened to series like a Tyus Edney, Orien Greene, or Sherman Douglas? Have some fun!

Unfortunately we will have no recaps or Green Envy's for a while, so figured it might be fun and give people a distraction to debate in the comment section on a different question every day while we are stuck in this new normal.
