An all out superstar that led the big three to the 2008 NBA Championship, winning the Finals MVP award after averaging 22.0 points per game in the finals series.
Paul Pierce was sent to the Brooklyn Nets along with Kevin Garnett for what is seen as one of the best trades in Celtics' history as they acquired countless first round draft picks for the declining superstars.
