  1. I feel like I constantly struggle to identify Pierce’s place in history. Is he a Hall of Famer? He has always been a great scorer and the years with Garnett and Allen have made him better. I feel like Garnett is the heart and soul of the team these past couple of years, and he has made Pierce better and not necessarily vice versa.
