Rondo was drafted by the Suns in the 2006 draft and traded to the Celtics immediately. In around eight seasons playing for Boston, Rondo averaged as high 14 points per game in the 2012-13 season as their starting point guard.

His career-high 2.3 steals per game (league-leading) came in 2009-10 when he was named an All-Star for the very first time. The only four All-Star appearances he has bagged so far in his career were when he was a member of the Celtics squad.

Moreover, he averaged a double-double of points and assists in his last four seasons in Boston, before being shipped to Dallas, followed by Sacramento and a host of other cities.


#3 Kyrie Irving(2017-present)

Kyrie was having a career-season in Cleveland when he decided to jump ship and join the Celtics. Injuries restricted him to just 60 games in his very first year in Boston, though the team managed to get to the ECF without his services.

In his return, Kyrie is putting together All-Star numbers yet again and leading his team from the front. Now a 6-time All-Star, Uncle Drew is growing as a player with every passing season and is counted amongst some of the best point guards in the game ever.
