Poll: When will Paul Pierce pass Larry Bird in the record books?
Paul Pierce is closing in on Larry Bird in the Boston Celtics' record book in terms of total points scored as a Celtic. Larry currently holds the #2 spot with 21,791 points, while Pierce is #3 at 21,731 points. (In case you were wondering, John Havlicek holds the #1 spot with 26,395 points).
With Pierce averaging around 18 points per game this season, we should see him pass Larry in 4 games (maybe 3 if he averages 20 points the next few games).
Which game this year do you think Pierce will pass Bird in the record books? In which game would you like to see him achieve this milestone? Vote in the poll and leave your comments below.
It would be nice for Paul to pass Larry Bird when we play our rival Lakers on February 9th in Boston. Ray Allen made 3 point history against the Lakers last year, so it would be fitting for Pierce to do the same as well.
