The Truth stayed loyal to Boston and it worked out. In 2008, they finally got him some real help and he delivered. Paul Pierce is a sure-fire Hall of Famer just because he's the second all-time leading scorer in Celtics history behind Hondo. He has the "clutch-gene" Skip Bayless loves to talk about. When the game's on the line and he gets to the elbow, you might as well walk off the floor because it's going in. Pierce relishes those moments especially when the opposing fans boo him relentlessly. #wheelchairsteez
