The Boston Celtics first-round draft picks have played a huge role in the franchise's tremendous NBA success. The Celetics have won the most titles in league history and have done so with talent acquired in the NBA draft.

Players like Larry Bird, Paul Pierce, and Kevin McHale, some of the best NBA players of all time, all started as Celtics draft picks. The Celtics also hit with NBA All-Star Reggie Lewis and Finals MVP Cedric Maxwell, part of a legacy of successful draft picks by the Celtics.

But which of these players had the greatest impact on the franchise. The stats below reflect only a player's time spent with the Celtics, and that is what you should base your vote on. Did this player help the Celtics get better?
