Paul Pierce needs to get traded, and he needs to get traded now. I don’t know how much longer I can watch him call for the ball, then once he gets the ball take his awful fall away jump shot. This is especially true when the Celtics are down in the 4th quarter with under 2 minutes to go. It’s good that he wants to take the final shot, that’s what you want on your team, but after you front rim a couple of key shots wouldn’t you stop? You have one of the best shooters in NBA history on the floor with you, why are you shooting that shot? I would rather have Ray Allen take that shot 10 out of 10 times. No question. Sometimes Pierce just needs to shoot the ball instead of looking for contact all the time. Does he think that the defense and refs don’t know what he’s doing? He does it every time and it almost never works anymore.

It’s really unfair to pin all the Celtics problems on Paul Pierce though. The actual problem is that the Celtics are old and need to be rebuilt again, and soon. The longer Ainge waits, the worse this is going to be. He needs to trade a few of these guys while they still have some value in the NBA. After next year nobody is going to want Pierce or KG. As much as I would hate to see the “Big 3” get split up, this needs to happen. They won a championship, they achieved their goal. The “Big 3” have served their purpose for the Celtics. Hopefully Ainge realizes that he needs to make some moves before he ends up with another team like they had in the late 90’s. That’s “The Truth”.
