#10 Paul Pierce
Pierce proved throughout his illustrious NBA career that you don’t necessarily need blazing speed, high-flying athleticism or insane explosiveness to be an elite scorer and great overall player. He was methodical and crafty, and no defender was ever really able to contain him. Pierce’s career peaked when the Celtics teamed him up with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. In their first season together, they captured the NBA championship and Pierce won Finals MVP. In all, the California native was a 10-time NBA All-Star and one of the most clutch players in league history.
