John Havlicek was disappointed that Paul Pierce was unable to spend his entire career with the Boston Celtics, a rare accomplishment in the current NBA era.

Havlicek gave Pierce high praise in regards to his place amongst Celtics' greats.

"It's a lot different today but I wish him well," said Havlicek. "He's one of the best all-around players and the thing I marveled at was his one-on-one ability. I think he's the best one-on-one player of all Celtics."
