Paul Pierce wins the 3-point shootout thanks to a 20-point final round in which he nailed 5 money balls.
Pierce beat out Stephon Curry (17 pts) and Chauncey Billups (14 pts).
Hell fucking yeah…The greatest Celtoc of my era. I out him right there with Larry Bird in terms of pure talent and ability. BNow we can watch his victory for years like we’ve watched Birds’ back2back for years
It was a MADHOUSE here!! We were screamin’ for Paul! F’in badass!! He’s got to be the only contestant ever to yell between racks to pump himself up. Yeeeeaaaaah!!!!
YEAH! GET SOME! GET SOME!
This is a good omen, the Celtics are gonna beast second half of the season.
You gotta give credit where credit is due. Congrats to Pierce for winning the 3 point contest. Thats about all the celtics will win this year. Enjoy it guys!
Well, it’s been a few weeks since he put one in during an actual game, so I guess he was due. Also, Barkley’s an a-hole about Pierce’s isn’t he a top 10 Celtic. How many rings for you Charles? Have another burger. A few years ago, Barkley was original and funny. He’s a joke now.
People! Sbd saw Rondo making 3 after 3 in HORSE game? He was amazing hanging on with Durant for so long, that TNT run out of time. I couldn’t belive what i’m watching!
Congrats to PP!
for your future attempts at a funny name: it’s the O’BriEn trophy, not O’BriAn
Barkley also said that the reason Pierce isn’t a top Celtic is because the Celtics are the best organization in NBA history. I liked that part.
He does seem to have an aversion to Pierce. He periodically accuses Pierce of faking an injury in the 08 finals and when he did his all-star roster he left Pierce off and put Ray Allen on instead.
Oh well. Pierce has more rings and more 3-point titles.
I give him credit for winning, but was it necessary to tank the last weeks, and ESPECIALLY playing with an injury against NO, just to make it into this?
I just hope that once this all-star shit is over the Celtics can focus on the right thing.
Eh.. the last game before this competition he dribbled the ball off his foot and turned the ball over 8 times… congrats on winning the 3 pt shootout but i dont know why exactly it meant so much to him, or why he was so cocky afterwards calling himself one of the greatest shooters in NBA history?
That said i enjoyed it and was rooting him on
