He's been averaging around 1,500 PTS a season since th big 3 era(except for the injury season last year). Let's say he scores 700-800 more points this season + another 4500 in the next 3 seasons. That'll put him only 500-400 points away from the record.
If Pierce stays healthy, in shape and motivated to play, I can see him breaking the record at age 36-37.

Pierce ranks anywhere from 5-8. What bodes well for him is that he is in the top 5 in many of the statistical categories but obviously in Boston players are rated via Championships. So another ring could really help ensure his legacy currently I think I would have him in the all time Celtics starting line up though that doesn't necessarily make you a top 5 Celtic.
Jo Jo White
Move Cowens and Jo Jo White above PP. PP would be behind even DJ if he wasn't saved by KG and Ray Ray.YOu need to add TIny and Parrish to this list also.
Condescending much? Cowens would probably go ahead of him, as well as McHale. He has a lot of winning and an MVP, but the relative shortness of his career leaves the door open for a debate on the issue.
