Paul Pierce for sure. Pressey was good but he wasn't in Pierce's class. Maybe say Moncrief and it is closer.

I considered Moncrief but Pressey was a GREAT passer an a damn good defender, very high IQ to boot. He was efficient, but he couldn't touch Pierces pure scoring numbers. I wanted to see if they other areas of his game made up for that. The interesting thing was Pierce became more Pressey like later on in his career (big 3 era) and wasn't that playmaker or defender when he was scoring 25 +

Seems like I'm way off base though.


*Moncrief gets his pub here, Pressey rarely does.
