These past few years have been tough on anyone who was born in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Last year, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and Kevin Garnett retired. They will soon be joined by Paul Pierce, which will leave Vince Carter as the last 90s player in the NBA.
Paul Pierce was the Boston Celtics franchise player, for better or for worse, from 1999 through 2013. After the trade to the Nets, Pierce became a journeyman. He would play for the Wizards in 2014-2015, before rejoining Doc Rivers with the LA Clippers.
Prior to this season, Paul Pierce announced this would be his final season in the NBA. Because of this, Pierce had a lot riding on this game, his last one in Boston. Coming away with the win, Paul Pierce got a standing ovation and he spoke on Boston during the postgame interview with ESPN.
