QUIZ: Name every first-round draft pick of the Boston Celtics since Larry Bird

In 1979, the Boston Celtics drafted Larry Bird sixth overall out of Indiana State University which lead to a rebirth in the franchise's championship winning-ways of the past. The Celtics also used the eighth pick on Freeman Williams - but he never played with the team. Can you name every first-round draft pick made by the Boston Celtics following the selection of Larry Bird that turned the NBA team into a perennial powerhouse?
