    PP has had a greeat career and  his number should go up in  the rafters.  Youd have a hard time making a case for PP>Bird.   I wont get into it but if you were around during Birds days and know basketball, the question wouldnt even be asked.

    I agree with everyone else.  even if Pierce wins another championship, he will never be better than Larry Bird.  Although, Pierce is one of my favorite Celtics players ever.  I did attend the game last night and it was great to see Pierce have such a great game.

    Umm, no. 

    It's not just about longevity dude. Pierce had a lot of leadership and attitude problems that plagued him for much of his prime. We all admire him and what he's become and he's a top ten Celtic and may well be a top five before he's done, but he's not higher than Bird. 

    Also, 

    ". talking post-30, in the same way kobe is clearly BETTER than Mj at a similar age-stage of their careers."

    Ummn, not at all. At this age Michael Jordan was winning his last championship. Michael was much better at this age than Kobe because he had less road miles on his legs. It's not even close and it points out some flaws in how you are looking at this. 

    If you want to argue Pierce has been one of the most durable Celtcs fine. But he has had trouble bringing it every night as all older players do. He can never catch Bird now. And no, if for some crazy reason he is on another championship team it will not be as a central player so it won't really matter that much.

    I can only translate a about 1/3 of the original post but saying PP is better than Bird obviously someone never saw Bird play.   This is one scatterbrained thread

    No way PP34 is better than Larry Legend. Sorry dude but you should put that pipe down, it ain't doing you any good.

    ... talking post-30, in the same way kobe is clearly BETTER than Mj at a similar age-stage of their careers.. last night was vintage pp.. came out with a plan, was going to send a message no matter what.. refuse to lose.. bird could do it with rebounding and passing but he could got got.. when pp commits he can be just like bron or durant or yeah.. kobe! he's just too unselfish and contained by this system to bring it every night like that.. see what he did lasy year when he was player of the month TWICE to close out the season? pp had 3 steals in addition to 5 assists and 8 boards.. all the stuff bird could do plus the superior athleticism and ability to get to the line.. one more ring and regardless of age, pp could be the GREATEST CELTIC ever not named russell!

    Commie, why bother forming any opinioins when you rely upon the talking heads on tv for yours?

    Magic once called Rondo the best pg in the nba..therefore nobody here can argue that point unless we think we know more about basketball than Magic. Is that pretty much how your brain operates?

    With that rationale, anyone that possesses a better basketball resume than yourself, pretty much trumps any opinioin or comment you have.
