Very nice article by Red's Army called Paul Pierce: The last great Celtic
Here's a blurb, but the article is worth the read.
I know there will be other guys who wear this uniform for their entire careers. Maybe a few of them will pass Pierce on some of the team's all-time lists. Some will have their numbers raised to the rafters. But none of that matters. It doesn't matter if that guy is the best player in Celtics history. He's still not going to be what Paul Pierce is now. That's because Paul is the last of them to know Red Auerbach.
