It sucked to see a NBA legend and champion like Paul Pierce end his career by coming off the Clippers’ bench to score six points in a 1st round exit, but in a year, nobody will remember how The Truth ended his 19-year career. They will remember how it started 20 years ago in 1998. They will remember him holding a Finals MVP trophy 10 years ago in 2008. They will remember all the clutch shots from the 10-time All-Star and the majority of the 26,391 points before Sunday’s game.
And here’s a bunch of former coaches, teammates, opponents, friends and an emotional Kevin Garnett, who called Pierce, “One of the more clutch, if not calmer beasts that I’ve met in my life.” remembering what makes The Truth a future hall of famer.
And here’s Pierce thanking his fans and saying farewell via Twitter.
