You know you’re getting old when you see your favorite players entire career end right before your eyes. I missed the Bird era growing up and Pierce got me into basketball right off the bat. This guy is a legend in my eyes, the hall of fame is all that’s next for him and hanging 34 from the rafters. Amazing memories, thank you Paul.
Pierce played 15 seasons in Boston from 1998 to 2013 before he has traded to the Brooklyn Nets which of course set the stage for the Celtics acquiring a boatload of draft picks. Pierce averaged 21.8ppg, 6rpg and 2.9apg while in beantown, including a championship title over the L.A. Lakers
Here were his last points at TD Garden:
