Paul Pierce has officially declared this season will be last as a player. The 38-year-old played the lion’s share of his profession with the Boston Celtics and affirmed today that he would, in reality, resign as a Celtic.
Pierce announced his intentions in an interview with SiriusXM’s NBA Radio:
Paul Pierce confirmed to us on @SiriusXMNBA that he’ll retire as a Celtic after the season… Said he owes it to himself and the fans.

The Truth, alongside Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, helped Boston win a title in 2008, finishing a 22-year championship drought. Over the late spring, Doc Rivers, who presently coaches Pierce in Los Angeles and drilled him in Boston, said that the beyond any doubt fire Hall of Famer coaches Pierce in Los Angeles and coached him in Boston, stated that the sure-fire Hall of Famer “has to retire as a Celtic.”
