Paul Pierce is currently shooting 41.4% from the floor this year. It's easily his worst FG% since he shot 40.2% in 2003-'04. The eyeball test seems to tell us that he's advancing in age and has lost a step. But, there is also good reason to be optimistic that Pierce's shooting will improve as the season goes on. From a column this morning by WEEI's Ben Rohrbach:
Rohrbach also points out that Pierce shoots better on no rest this season (46.7%), than after two or three days off (37.8). Maybe the Captain isn't actually getting as old as we think; maybe he's just getting warmed up.
