6. Boston Celtics vs. San Antonio Spurs – Fri, Dec. 8
This matchup features two of the best teams in the league in the Celtics and Spurs, but the franchises also have another connection: Boston really wanted to draft San Antonio star Tony Parker back in 2001. The Celtics had three first-round picks back in the 2001 Draft, and all rumors pointed to Parker being one of those picks. Instead, the Celtics changed their minds to North Carolina’s Joe Forte, and, boy, do they wish they could go back and change it. Forte played in eight games with the Celtics and wasn’t even in the league by 2003, while Parker has won four NBA titles and is a six-time All-Star.
The Spurs host the Celtics on Friday, December 8 at 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
