Default How long do Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce have at the top

How many seasons do you think these 3 have at the top, before they show major signs of age?

1 season? 2 seasons? 3 seasons?

I personally think 2 seasons will be it.

Yeah, 2 more years, although they will still be good players for longer, they wont be elite.

Hard to say if KG will ever play well enough again to be considered "elite". Ray Allen`s shooting has been "elite " but defensively , definitely not "elite". Paul Pierce is a great performer and one of the best players today, but outside of Boston, he is not considered "elite"
I would say KG has the best chance of the 3 to make it into the NBA hall of fame.

^KG is a HOF lock; the other two probably get in as well.

A "lock" would be for a player that has multiple MVP awards, championships, scoring titles, assist titles, defensive recognition. Like Jordan, Jabbar, Bird.
If Pierce is a "lock" (laughable) then make a new wing in the HOF for the better than average.

This.

I would like to see PP make it and I believe he will. But many would disgaree, or at least question it. We all love PP but he is not MJ, Bird, Magic, Hakeem, Shaq.......those are examples of locks.
