Boston Celtics has announced that Paul Pierce will have his shirt retired next February 11th when Celtics play against the Cavs in a shining ceremony for a player who deserves a great goodbye party. On July he officially declared his retirement from a 19 year career who also played for Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers. He recently stated:“It’s an honor to have this opportunity to once again call myself a Boston Celtic. The organization and city took me in and made me one of their own, and I couldn’t imagine ending my career any other way. I’m a Celtic for life.”

So interesting that he was set as the 10th overall pick from 1998 NBA draft and led the Boston Celtics for his only championship since 1986 in 2008. Got the MVP NBA Finals and was selected ten times for the All Star Game. Boston Celtics co-owner has said: “It’s going to be fantastic. For our era, the most recent era, he embodied the Celtics’ leadership, the Celtics’ brand and was the MVP of the championship team. So it’s going to be fantastic to see that happen.”
The stats show a very insistent and impressive player on many points of his career. He averaged 21.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals across 1,102 regular season games with Celtics. Made 136 postseason appearances for Boston checking 20.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in the playoffs. And now he will become Bill Russell, Larry Bird, John Havlicek, Kevin McHale and Bob Cousy teammates of shirts hang at the top of the wall’s team. It`s expected to be crowded in the stadium since Paul Pierce was one of the most cared players of Boston in the last years.
