Paul Pierce aka “The Truth”, was a key clog in the Boston Celtics latest championship win. He was part of what we like to call “The Original Big 3”.
For 9 seasons he led The Celtics with his tough defense and clutch shot-making. Then the 2007-08 season, he was joined by Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett and finally had enough firepower around him to win it all. Boston took the 2008 championship from their rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, with Pierce winning Finals MVP. He famously got hurt in the Finals and had to go off on a wheel chair.
Only to infamously return. Which was one of the most made fun of and iconic moments in recent NBA Finals history. Pierce left Boston after the 2012-13 season, second on the franchise’s all-time scoring list, and first in team history in steals and 3-pointers.
