I don't understand this. Paul Pierce, KG and AK47 all put in all-star caliber years last year. Why do SOME people act like we've added players that havent done anything in years?
Yep. At this point in their careers, they're still very productive. They're just not 1st (or even 2nd in KG's case) options anymore which is why the situation in Brooklyn is perfect.
If you need Garnett to get you 20 a night, you're in trouble. If you need him to play good D, knock down open 16 footers & occasionally post up for you, then he's absolutely perfect.
And Pierce was 19 ppg on 56% TS last year, 38% from 3. He is a MASSIVE MASSIVE upgrade over Crash who was giving them 8 ppg on 28% from 3. MASSIVE upgrade. And defensively, once you get past Bron & Melo (who both routinely torch Crash BTW) Pierce can adequately defend every other 3 in the East.
