O please....so sick of being underrated pierce athletiscm...

Hes very strong..pretty quick...very average speed but he leaps quick. Hes an nba caliber athlete with amazing skills.

Defensively he has great iq and a 7 0 wingspan at close to 6 7.

He also knows how to keep his opponent off balance.. Mj was the master of getting space but Pierce is very good at it as well... They used to call that CRAFTY... He is crafty is pretty muCH THE ANSWEr..

That's one of the things i love about his game he is very, very good at getting space for his midrange jumper

he is deceptive

you talked about his slow release, yea but if you go for the block he'll put the ball down on the floor and blow by you, and if you try to block him he'll simply jump into you to get free throws, if you dont contest, he'll make the 3 on you

he is not a great ball handler but his size and strength makes him a great mid range post up player, all he need to do is get the ball some where around the top of the key then it's money

Is there something that im missing that seperates him from the other sf in the league? I would say hes the 4th best sf in the league at the moment behind lebron, durant and melo

Your avatar and your user name indicate that you are an idiot. No wonder you asked this retarded question.

Why are so many of you being ***** to the OP? He asked an honest question that wasn't offensive in the least, even to the most unapologetic Celtic nutjobs, yet you cvnts are talking sh*t.

That's all you dumb Bawston cvnts are good for anyway. You talk a big game and then choke every time it counts. Have fun fawning over your 3rd rate star. Build him a statue in front of your sh*tty arena. You might as well do it now since you ain't winning any more rings with that cast of senior-citizen has-beens. Good riddance, knob-gobblers.

It's amazing how often people forget about strength when they talk about athleticism. With basketball, you want excellent core strength, because then you can move body into contorted shapes but still stay balanced.

Also folks on ISH don't realize how important deception is. Pierce often lulls his man into sleep and changes speed or direction.

His defender isn't the only one sleeping. That's why none of us even know how he does it. We get bored watching him, turn away and see that he's scored.
