So me and one of my fellow NBA enthusiasts were arguing over whether or not The Truth deserves to have his number retired with the rest of the Celtic greats. Iargued that not only does he deserve such an honor, but he should (and will one day) enter the Hall of Fame. I'd like to hear both sides of the argumenthere. I think Pierce is one of the best and most durable SG's/SF's of his generation. I feel that he never got enough love because he wasn't as flashy assay VC, yet I feel he was a better player and had a better career. Here are some stats/reasons as to why I think he is HOF worthy: - 7 Time All-Star (likely to get at least one more this year, plus possibly a couple more) - 23 ppg avg for career, with 20+ ppg each season since his sophomore year. Not to mention, single season avg's of 25, 26, 26 for three consecutive yearsin the early '00's. Right atop the NBA. - 1 time NBA Champion - 1 time NBA Finals MVP (amongst possibly one of the greatest teams ever) - 3x All NBA 3rd Team ('02, '03, '0....1x All NBA 2nd Team ('09) - Will likely reach 20,000 career points. An elusive club in the NBA, consisting of only 33 members. His only downfall in my opinion is that he never once made an All NBA First team. Please chime in. HOF worthy or not?
