Pierce makes second-team All NBA

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

Paul Pierce [1] 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 [2] made First, Second or Third team All-NBA, although Kevin Garnett [3], Ray Allen [4] 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 [5] was the only unanimous selection.

First Team

G: Dwyane Wade [6]

Second Team

Third Team

G: Chauncey Billups [15]

F: Carmelo Anthony

F: Pau Gasol [16]

C: Shaquille O’Neal [17]
