Paul Pierce Finally Clears Up Questions About His NBA Future



The NBA could see another legend hang em up this offseason. Paul Pierce has just completed his 15th season in the league and his first year with the Los Angeles Clippers. It was disappointing on many different levels and has the 38-year-old serious contemplating his future, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe:

“Well, we always say it’s 51-49. I get 51 percent of the vote and the rest of (the family) gets 49. (My wife’s) input carried a lot of weight. We’ll figure out some things. I know I don’t want to be sitting at home, whatever I do, regardless. If I come back, it will be for one more (season) and that will be it. No doubt.”

Doc Rivers had brought in former All-Star forward Paul Pierce in hopes of getting the Clippers over the top in the daunting Western Conference. However, he put together the worst season of his career averaging career lows across the board with 6.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 18.1 minutes per game. Although he appeared in 68 games, it’s clear that he’s a shadow of himself.

If this is indeed it for Pierce, he has put together a Hall of Fame-worthy career. He holds numerous Boston Celtics along with leading the franchise to an NBA title. He’s also one of only three players in Celtics history alongside Larry Bird and John Havlicek to have scored over 20,000 points with the team.
