During the era of NBA superstars, Paul Pierce was clearly always a level behind the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. But, Paul Pierce is the only star who holds the distinction of beating them both in the playoffs in the same year. Of course, he had some notable help.
Paul Pierce played with the Boston Celtics from 1999 through 2013, as the 1998 lockout took place after he was drafted. During that time, he was there for the highs and lows. In 2013, he was traded and became a journeyman, playing for the Nets, Wizards, and Clippers.
Sadly, Paul Pierce will not be able to end his career with the Celtics, but he will be alongside Doc Rivers at the LA Clippers.
