Bostons Celtics legend Paul Pierce believes he would have won 3-4 NBA titles if he had teamed up with Kevin Garnett a few years earlier when they were in their mid-twenties.

“We talk about our championship in Boston, we always say, man, we were supposed to link up like three or four years before this. I mean, could you imagine me and KG in our early twenties or mid twenties. Oh man, we probably would have been sitting on three or four championship. Cause that proved to be a great combination. Especially the inside-outside threat and our relationship, us being brothers … it was amazing.”

Garnett joined Boston in 2007 and helped the Celtics win the title that same season.
