Who’s Had a Better Career: Paul Pierce or Ray Allen?

Paul Pierce

We argue. You decide.

PAUL PIERCE (by Adam Flomenbaum) Of course, nicknames don’t define a player, but both Paul Pierce and Ray Allen have nicknames that will live on with them past their playing days.

Decision 2010: Time to retire?

Tracy McGrady

It’s like if Lauryn Hill dropped an album this year: Half her fans would be thrilled to snatch up anything by L-Boogie, while the other half would be terrified of the potential damage to her legacy when she’s clearly not at the top of her game right now.

But really, the concept of “going out on top” is one that has become strangely unique to sports. Read More »
