Pierce makes second-team All NBA

Posted By Paul Flannery On May 13, 2009 @ 1:32 pm In General | 1 Comment

Paul Pierce was selected to the All-NBA Second Team the league announced today. Pierce had been on three All-NBA Third Teams (2001-02, 2002-03 and 200708), but this this is the first time he has cracked the Second Team barrier.

No other Celtics made First, Second or Third team All-NBA, although Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Rajon R0ndo also received votes. This was not one of the captain’s better seasons statistically, but he earned praise for keeping the team together during an injury-plagued second half and for several clutch performances.

LeBron James was the only unanimous selection.

C: Shaquille O’Neal
