07:05 AM ET 08.19 | Paul Pierce has a new NBA home, one he's embracing in Brooklyn. "There was only like three [teams] maybe I wanted to go to, and [Brooklyn] was one of them," he said. "This gives me pretty much everything I'm looking for in the last few years of my career. I get a chance to play in a big market. I get a chance to try to win a championship." ... Pierce said he will assess his future on a yearly basis, but he has one particular motivation left. "My goal is to outlast [Tim] Duncan, Kobe [Bryant], Dirk [Nowitzki], and KG, this is what's left of that generation," he said. "I'm looking at all of them. We all are kind of in the same boat where [retirement] can happen in the next year or two. Vince [Carter] is in there. He's still playing. They still look strong."
