What the Hell Happened to...Garfield Smith?

When the Celtics drafted their first round pick of the 1968 draft, they probably didn't know it was going to take him two seasons to join the team.  He was known as the "Mystery Man" before his introductory press conference in July of 1970.  The fact is, he had been serving in the army.  If you followed the Celtics in the 60s and 70s, you definitely remember Garfield...

Video: NBA.com's Top 10 Celtics plays from last season (and the one they missed)

This video is a lot like the season as a whole; mostly unimpressive.  I liked Pressey's pass, Crawford's crossover, a couple of Green's dunks, and the buzzer beater in Miami.  There must have been some better plays they missed, right?  Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments section.It's also kind of sad that Rondo wasn't even included, with the exception...
