In terms of his efficiency (which takes into account three pointers with eFG%, and threes + FTs in TS%), Pierce is exactly where he was last year (.499 eFG% this year vs. .499 eFG% last year; .568 TS% vs. .567 TS% last year), and exactly in line with his career averages (.499 eFG%, .569 TS%).

You have to love these made up stats that they compile. 

He is shooting 6 points worse in FG%.  That makes him less efficient in my book.
Because FG% is not a "made up" stat at all.

So, in your eyes, somebody who shoots 50% and scores 8 points is more efficient thn somebody who shoots 40% and scores 12 points?

Comparing FG% without looking at where those shots are from and how many points they're generating makes no sense at all to me.

Might as well throw in that his PER is currently higher than where it ended during the last 5 seasons. 1 good game doesn't get you there. Being 9th in the NBA in scoring will.  His defensive rating is 103 which is still above average and 3rd best on the team.

which weighs more? loyalty to a player or betterment of the team?

if the Celtics can get a player(s) who is younger, who fills the great need of the team and will make the team better in exchange for the celtic legend, will you do it?

If we can get a noah, a horford, or a marc gasol via trade with pierce leaving, and with free-agent-to-be josh smith looming, will you do it?  I will...and perhaps we can get smith via trade also for bass and lee as the hawks would not want to lose him for nothing via free agency ala-Cavs..

A noah/garnett/smith frontline will be scary defensively...and with rondo running the point, the celtics will be the team to beat...

We will forever be grateful for all you have done for the Celtics organization... Your legend will be passed on from generation to generation.... Your jersey will be waving from the rafters...but now, i think we have to let you go...
