How about putting Paul Pierce on a team with Al Jefferson, Wally Szcerbiak, Delonte West and Kendrick Perkins and lets see how good he does?

oh wait that happened, they had a 24-58 record along with a 18 game losing streak.


Excellent post.

Plus, all the starters on Pierce's teams would have easily of made our Laker teams. Meaning, Kobe nearly got past the Suns in the playoffs with a worse team than Pierce lost 58 games with.

Kwame Brown, Lamar Odom, Luke Walton and SmAsh Parker..

Perkins > Brown. Jefferson > Odom. WALLY ZSCERBIAK > Fluke. DELONTE WEST is way way way ahead of SmAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaAsh!

And yet Pierce lost 58 games with this unit? My goodness.

Good job conveniantly leaving out that he was with Al before Al broke out, Szerbiak was always injured, and you are trying to pass off Delonte West and Kendrick Perkins as better players? Give me Odom and Kwame any day over those tools.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Who cares? If he is the best player in the world shouldnt he be able to lift his team to a better record? How about adding the fact he was in the East that was really weak a couple years ago?

Boston Celtics Combined Record 05-06,06-07: 57-107 plus 07-08: 123-125
Los Angeles Lakers Combined Record 05-06,06-07: 87-77 plus 07-08:144-102

When you take into account that Paul Pierce isn't even the leader of the team, it's Garnett, this is clearly enough said.

If we faced the Orlando Magic in the finals, I would guess that Turkoglu would've gotten Finals MVP... BECAUSE he would've been guarded by Vlad/Luke. Is Turkoglu HOF-worthy just because of this one Finals MVP? I think not. If we faced the Cavs, LeBron would've dropped 40/9/9 for the series...

Paul Pierce is a really good basketball player. He MIGHT get into the HOF if he continues to win with the Celtics and put up good numbers. Maybe.
