In Paul Pierce: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Greatest Small Forwards, you will learn the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier small forwards, Paul Pierce. Since joining the NBA as the 10th overall pick in the 1998 NBA Draft, Paul Pierce has solidified his legacy as one of the most impressive small forwards to ever play the game, having led the Boston Celtics alongside Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to the 2008 NBA Championship.

It was no surprise to others in the league when the Big Three captured the title, as the Celtics simply dominated.

While Paul Pierce has since moved on to other opportunities around the league, there is no question that Pierce's legacy will forever be tied to the Boston Celtics franchise. In this book, we'll explore Paul's journey into the NBA, his greatest moments, and what makes 'The Truth' one of the greatest small forwards to ever play the game.

An excerpt from the book:

Throughout the long history of the NBA, the league has seen its share of big shot takers and shot makers. We have heard about Jerry West’s penchant for making and hitting big shots in clutch situations during the earlier years of the NBA. There is no wonder why he is the league’s logo and the very first player to win the Finals MVP award. Fast-forward to the 80’s, and you will hear about Magic Johnson and Larry Bird fighting for league supremacy by playing and performing at their best in big-game situations. A few years after them, Michael Jordan became a household name throughout his career when it came to making big shots and winning big games. His clutch plays have made him one of the most famous basketball players in the world. During Mike’s prime, Reggie Miller also rose up to break hearts by hitting big shots.

The new millennium dawned, and we have seen guys like Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade among others making and hitting clutch shots. In today’s generation, we have players like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and James Harden draining big shots. However, there seems to be one name that often finds itself missing in conversations about the biggest shot makers of the NBA despite having delivered time and time again for almost two decades. That great NBA player is Paul Pierce.
