Pierce has played 15 seasons, all with the Celtics (commendable in this day and age), and year after year he has continued to pump out consistent numbers and stellar play. Despite being 35, around the age when players past their prime usually begin to rapidly decline (see Chris Webber, Gary Payton, Allen Iverson, etc.), Pierce has continued to be consistent.
Pierce's rookie season aside, he has never failed to score less than 18 points per game, and his per 36 points per game have held steadily around 20 the past six seasons, just shy of his performances when he was 27 years old.
This reliability comes from Pierce's unique skill set. While never being the strongest, fastest or most athletic player on the court, he has spent years in the gym refining and honing his series of go-to moves that continue to allow him to create his own shot.
Let's take a look at his best five offensive weapons and see why Pierce will likely continue to play at a very high level as a member of the Nets.
