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.

He'll pass Bird next year as long as he doesn't get injured.

Upon reading the responses, I guess it's not so crazy after all to assume that Pierce would be a top 5 Celtic.

The Celtics didn't have a abundance of awesomes scoerers in their history. Bird averaged 24PPG for his career as a Celtic, that's #1. Pierce is #2 at 22PPG.

don't forget we are talking about this while he is playing. the nostalgia factor will boost up his rating more than anything once he retires.

Russell
McHale
Bird
Pierce
Cousy

Bench
Cowens
Heinsohn
Hondo
Jones
DJ
Garnett
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.

GO Google Dave Cowens and get back with me.

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.

Four Automatics:

Russell
Bird
Hondo
Cousy

after that it's between Pierce, Heinsohn McHale, Parish, Sam Jones, Bill Sharman, Jo Jo White, Dennis Johnson and KG.

I can't put Pierce above McHale or Jones.
