Last week vs. the Milwaukee Bucks, Celtics forward Paul Pierce joined an elite club in Boston history. Pierce became just the third Celtics player in team history to score 20,000 career points while playing his entire career as a Celtic.
He joins past legends Larry Bird and John Havlicek as the three to do it in Boston, and will likely pass Bird by the end of next season.
Pierce is the best pure scorer in Boston Celtics history, and is a great leader. Pierce has endured a career full of much struggle and adversity in Boston, but his focus and determination have made him a better player while finally playing on a winner.
Many player’s careers do not improve each season when they reach their mid thirties, but Pierce has transformed his game tremendously since 2008.
He is a much better defensive player, and can still score in every way, especially from three pint range.
Paul Pierce is an all time Boston Celitcs player, and will be an NBA hall of famer when he retires.
