No. 1 – Ed Macauley x Converse All Star

Year: 1951
Team: Boston Celtics

Played in the historic Boston Garden, 1951’s inaugural NBA All-Star game saw Celtic Ed Macauley lead the way for the Eastern Division. He dropped 20 points and grabbed six rebounds, edging out teammate Dolph Schayes (15 points/14 boards) for the MVP award. Like most players at the time, Macauley wore Converse All Stars for this fine performance, utilizing the breathable canvas upper to stay cool as the 6’ 8” forward backed down Hall-of-Famers like George Mikan and Vern Mikkelsen in the post.
