As far as I'm concerned, is one of the best players ever at getting a shot off after drawing a foul. His ability to fire accurate shots that have a chance to go in after absorbing contact is uncanny.
What it shows is Pierce is a lot stronger than people give him credit for. He's a wide guy. He's spent more than a decade of up-faking, absorbing contact and then firing up shots that have a chance to go in. When you've got NBA players crashing down you… it's all you can do to stay on your feet… never mind gather yourself, square up… and fire a decent shot up at the rim.
I'll stand by my assertion that Pierce's career is highly underrated. This aspect of his game is unparrallelled. When you think about him shooting 6-10 last night… remember two of those shots were these two right here. Amazing.
