In the video above, WEEI speaks with Charlotte Bobcats coach Paul Silas, who won two NBA championships with the Celtics in the 1970s. Silas talks about the differences between Paul Pierce and John Havlicek, saying "They're kind of different players... Havlicek was just very aggressive running all the time. He'd get up and down the floor, ran and banked shots off the board. Pierce is more of a guy going 1-on-1. Havlicek didn't do that. And Pierce is more of a long-range shooter. Havlicek could shoot long-range, but that wasn't really his game." Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett are interviewed by the media after the jump. Also included is the video played on the Jumbotron after Pierce passed Larry Bird on the Celtics all-time scoring list. The tribute video contains a montage of some of Pierce's most memorable moments over his career, including the game-winner against the Knicks last year where Nate Robinson jumped over him and fell on his head.
