WATCH: Reflections on Boston Celtics champion forward Paul Pierce’s Hall of Fame induction
With the day of small forward Paul Pierce’s induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame having finally arrived, there will be celebrations of the iconic Boston Celtics star from Springfield, Massachusetts, to Pierce’s hometown of Inglewood, California.
And for good reason. The 10-time All-Star earned an NBA title with the Celtic, won the Finals Most Valuable Player award, was elected to four All-NBA teams, and gained countless other honors. The Truth has given Celtics fans — and haters — plenty to talk about for decades.
To honor that and dig into some of the juicier nuggets circulating in recent days because of the article by Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated to commemorate Pierce’s career, the hosts of the CLNS Media podcast “Winning Plays” hosted an episode focused on the former Kansas standout.
Watch the video embedded above to hear Rich Levine and Brian Robb’s thoughts on Pierce’s Hall of Fame induction, with plenty of introspection about one of Boston’s greatest players.
