Paul Pierce has come into the season in awesome condition. Wanna know how I can tell? He's got his lift back. His reverse dunk in the pre season, then his flush the other night are awesome signs for things to come. Last year he would have laid those two in, instead of finishing with authority. So far in the young season he is shooting 50% 3's / 46% FG / 93% FT. Quietly, with all of the focus off on KG and the other acquisitions, Pierce is just playing his game.


This is pretty scary for other teams in the league. KG is back with vengeance, we are RELOADED with Sheed/ Daniels/ Williams, Ray is in awesome shape, and PP is in much better shape than last year.
