To me, his best asset is his mid-range game... he's definitely the craftiest of the slashers people have mentioned. While most of those other guys rely on athleticism to get to the rack, Pierce has a counter for anything you throw at him... He only really 'slashes' if you're in his grill and aren't giving him his mid-range. Otherwise, he doesn't really have the quickness to get around you so he'll just give you a little misdirection/jab and knock down the mid-range

Paul Pierce has the record

Paul Pierce has the record for-

Most Consecutive Free Throws made in a playoff series- 21
Most Free Throws in a Finals Quarter- 10
Most Free Throws made in a season- 612
Most Free Throws attempted in a season-812

I think that's amazing because he is not up there in my top 5 Slashers....

yea, me neither. He gets a

yea, me neither. He gets a lot of those free throws off of initiating the contact entirely by himself and pumpfakes... he's also one of the guys who should be mentioned as having a REALLY high IQ. Offensively and Defensively. He's really not the most athletic guy yet I still remember him chasing LeBron and Kobe two years agp and doing a really good job. Defense is a lot mental

Pierce

I think he is definitely one of the top 5 slashers. He gets a lot of free throws of pump fakes, but he also gets a lot of and-1s at the rim. He gets by a lot of defenders.

to me, he only gets to the rack cuz you have to take away his mid-range... also because he can drive with the left and the right...

stats

I'm gonna have to look into that most ft's attempted and made in a season. Those unmbers seem too low. I would think would have the most attempted. 812 would be less then 10 per game if you played all 82 games, and I know plenty of guys have finished season with more then10 per game. Maybe I'm wrong though.

I sort of agree with Deuce,

I sort of agree with Deuce, but most of that &$#%#&@! is messed up man. I agree that getting to the line doesn't always mean you are a slasher but most of the time it does. I would not have him in my top 10.
