Last Season for Former Boston Celtic, Paul Pierce | Hoops Talk Nation

1474941872689

Paul Pierce made headlines on NBA media day  when the 18 year vet announced that the 2016-2017 season would be his last one as he intends on retiring from the game of basketball.  The news would come days after former Boston Celtic, teammate Kevin Garnett made it public that his career was also over as well.   Pierce, who won a championship in Boston with Garnett, will finish his career in his hometown with a Los Angeles Clippers squad expected to be one of the Western Conference’s best teams which will possibly give him an opportunity with a chance to chase a title in his final year.

The Truth would have played 19 seasons in the NBA with a substantial chunk in Boston where Garnett joined him along with Ray Allen to capture a title in 2008. Kevin and Paul would eventually move on to play together in Brooklyn for two seasons before Pierce decided to finish his career in his hometown of LA and play for the Clippers.

Considering the impact that both players had on the Boston franchise, it only made sense that Nick Gelso from CLNS Radio join the Hoops Talk Nation podcast to reflect on the careers of Pierce and KG.
