Paul Pierce played the majority of his career with the Boston Celtics and became one of the franchise’s most iconic players, earning the nickname “The Truth” for his straightforward and effective style of play. Pierce was selected 10th overall by the Boston Celtics in the 1998 NBA Draft.
Over his 15 seasons with the Celtics, he was named an NBA All-Star ten times. In 2007, the Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, creating a “Big Three” that led the team to an NBA Championship in 2008. Pierce was named the NBA Finals MVP for his outstanding performance in the championship series.
After his tenure with the Celtics, Pierce played for the Nets, Wizards, and Clippers before retiring in 2017. His contributions to the sport were recognized when he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2021.
