Can Paul Pierce do it on both ends?
In 2007, Pierce went toe-to-toe with the likes of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant and came out on top. Pierce can still summon the offense when needed, but that superhuman effort is bound to weigh on his defense. Pierce is underrated on that end of the floor, where he leads the team in charges. The question is whether or not the Celtics captain can muster the energy to be the team’s best player every night. Paging Jeff Green.
