With the Brooklyn Nets looking lost against an Orlando Magic team in rebuilding mode, Paul Pierce rose to the occasion. Literally. On a fast break, Pierce crossed over rookie Victor Oladipo, driving for the emphatic dunk. Entering his 15th season in the NBA, Pierce can still play with the fresh legs of NBA rooks. Pierce has been an unequivocal leader of the Nets since Deron Williams is off to a bit of a slow start.
The Nets might be losing to a really bad team, but at least Paul Pierce showed us that he can still ball.
