When Paul Pierce is on top of his game, i think he is the best SF in the league, his problem is inconsistancy. Penny -- He isn't overated, in fact, of all the stars in the league, he might be one of the lesser known ones. Considering his incosistancy, which should improve considering hes still very young, I would rank him in at least the top ten best players of the league, if not top five.

I can see why people would think that recently after his less-than-stellar series against the Nets. he shot terribly in that series save for one quarter.

That being said, I think that Pierce will be much better for the experience and that the best is definitely yet to come from him

I am not a huge fan of him, I kinda think he is overrated when he is compared to guys like Tracy McGrady & Vince Carter because he's steps behind those two but I'd say if you look at his stats those are deffinately impressive.

For some reason, his game isn't that great compared to my boy T-Mac so I don't go crazy over P-Squared. He's good but just not yet good enough to be up their with the great one's.

I think hes overrated when being compared to McGrady, but not Vince Carter. Vince Carter is overrated.

I dont feel Paul Pierce is overrated. P2 got the Celtics where they needed to me. Im sorry but i hate Toine Walker so i think he doesnt do shyt for the team (altho he does, SUMTIMES). Paul Pierce is consistent, n clutch @ sum points. The Nets series shudnt be a reason y u say he is overrated. He had an off season and wasn't able to turn it around. Alotta other ppl had off series n went home but we dont call em overrated... (cough tmac, altho he was his team the whole series)~

Im out `1~

I like Pierce's game, but his defense needs to improve.

I know he has the hardest guys to guard, being that the east is loaded with the best swingmen, but his defense still has to improve.

He is in the top 10 players in the league, IMHO.

I never thought Paul Pierce was even 'rated" in the national population around the US. You know what I mean?

He doesn't get much talk about much of the stuff he does, If anyone on the Celtics is overrated it's Antoine Walker. I thought he was deadly behind the arc? He didnt show nothing.


Overrated players are ones who get the media spotlight day in and day out throughout the season.

Mike Miller is overrated after his ROY last year. He had nothing showing in the playoffs.

Nobody was expecting Paul Pierce to get stuff done for the Celtics.

But next year, they'll definetly rate paul according to last years season which is a burden for some NBA PLAYERS.

And by next year, he'll can rate him .

How?

How can Paul Pierce be overrated? How? Have any of the top media reporters say that he is the best player in the league? Has anyone said that he can dominate everyone in the NBA? No.

To say he is overrated is crazy. Look what he did for the Celtics this past season. All Stats together he was ranked the no.1 player in the NBA....(Fantasy NBA) all categories combined may i say again.

Nobody questions this mans desire and skills for the game. He is a great player. He is not overrated because I don't think that many people say hes the best player. He is a super star...he is right up there in the league of TMAC, Vince, Kobe, Allen...just look at his stats...

Pierce

I don't think that he is overrated. He certainly isn't the best player in the league, but he is the best SF. He has a great jump shot, and can take the ball to the basket. He's a great player.

Everyone has their share of trash talk. But he performed throughout the playoffs. Definately not overrated at all.

If you watch the games, u will find out he does have problems taking his man off the dribble in the middle of the floor wher he has to face and worry about both side when he dribbles. And he also doesn't have good ball handling skills so he had to force himself into the post and wait for the ball. This was when Jersey easily took him out of the game by simple double teamed!

lol, the guy sux!:cool:
