#13: Shoutout to all the Celtics fans Bleeding Green in RUSSIA! 🇷🇺
The original Celtics enforcer
Hey Celtics fans in Russia! celticslife.com has had 311,902 visits from Russia since we originated in September 2009, which puts you at #13 on our list of countries with the most visits. Thanks so much for all the love you've shown for the site these past 10+ years.
Similar to a few other countries we've covered so far in the top 20, the Celtics have never had a player from Russia, but six-time NBA Champ Jim Loscutoff's parents were both Russian. Loscy as you may know him by due to his name being up in the rafters was an enforcer on the first six championships in the Celtics' dynasty.
The Celtics did draft one Russian player, Andrei Fetisov, back in 1994, but he was promptly traded along with Ed Pinckney to the Milwaukee Bucks for Blue Edwards and Derek Strong.
