Every Boston Celtic who has received MVP votes in more than one season

With an NBA-record 17 titles to their name, the Boston Celtics have had their fair share of Most Valuable Player candidates over their many decades of excellence.

And to honor them all, we here at the Celtics Wire have put together a comprehensive list of every player to grace a Celtics roster in the history of the storied ball club to get Most Valuable Player votes for more than one season of their careers. As a database, we have drawn on the exhaustive list of MVP vote-getters put together by the fine folks over at our sister site, Hoops Hype.

With all that said, let’s take a look at the Celtics who have had repeat seasons getting votes for MVP.
