where do you rank Pierce as a slasher?
Top 5? Top 10?
I dunno, but I saw a crazy stat they may make you rank him higher...
slasher......well he does take alot of free throws, so top 10 will be reasonable
Top 5 in no particular order...
Rounding out the top 10...
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
knicksboy, plz tell us that stat
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 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
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...
during the playoffs pierce looked really slow
Hater, why you always posting on my topics. you a stalker now?
also, alot of top free throw guys who get to the line are slashers
Wow deuce thats messed up, what has Pierce done to you?
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.
the record most freethrows attempted in a season is 1363 not 812
and the record mast made was 840 not 612
you are way off on those numbers knicksboy
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.
I was hearing them on BS Report will Bill Simmons, gonna recheck and come back. Sorry guys!
My bad guys, those were Celtics records not NBA records.
Deuc4eoff, your an idiot one day some goons might just run up on you... Dude almost died cats like you are worthless,... You seem like one of them cats that cant get laid, has no life, and hates the very thought of having to wake up and see themself in the mirror...Chump!!!!!!
