3. PAUL PIERCE
The Truth has that old man YMCA basketball swag to his game. He never looks particularly fit or blindingly athletic, but he will get buckets on you. He could score with his game until the end of time and he plays like he knows it. Paul Pierce is a showman. Regardless of how you feel about some of his stunts, like the wheelchair, there’s no denying that he knows how to get every bit of effect out of every action he takes.
He’s clutch, too, or at least always willing to try and be clutch. He asks to guard the elites at his position and seems to have one piece of the blueprint that stops LeBron from wreaking havoc. As teams and their players come and go, Paul Pierce has endured, doing the exact same things over and over again. You can’t fade Pierce and you can’t handle the Truth.
