Giants Pitcher Brian Wilson Loves the ’86 Celtics

Wilson makes a convincing argument for why the '86 Celtics are the greatest team in NBA history.

The great debate has raged for years: who is the best team in NBA history? To advertise for NBA 2K12, 2K Sports has been asking fans that very question, even shooting a few promos featuring NBA players (past and present), actors and musicians chiming in with their two cents on the matter. But none have made a more convincing argument than San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Brian Wilson, who is firmly in the camp of the 1986 Boston Celtics being the greatest NBA team ever.

Personally, I’m a Celts fan myself, so Wilson will get no argument from me. But even if you aren’t a fan of the Celtics, how can you argue with a man who has a cheetah rug? Answer: you can’t.

NBA 2K12 is available right now for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wi, PC and iOS. And if you want to chime in on the “great debate,” join the discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #NBA2KDebate to voice your opinion.
