PLAYERS: Paul Pierce

Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.

Earlier this week, ESPN Boston's Peter May wrote a column about things he will miss because of the NBA lockout.
