"This is it, my final season."
Paul Pierce's farewell tour begins in one month.
The soon to be 39-year old forward announced via The Players' Tribune that this upcoming season will be his last. Pierce will be entering his 19th season in the NBA, his second straight with the Clippers in the city where he grew up.
The 10-time All-Star made his announcement in the video below, in which he spoke about running through the tunnel for the first time as a rookie, how he hopes to get one more crack at an NBA championship in his final year, and how he'll relish the opportunity to visit each arena one last time.
Note: The Clippers will be making their only trip to Boston on Sunday, February 5th for a 2pm game on ABC.
