But you also forgot appreciation of his investments. If he had an investments broker as good as mine (and doesn't spend wildly), he'd easily have more then he earned.
I don't think he'll retire this year myself, and I kind of wish he'd be quiet about it. The team is playing very well, no need to upset the apple cart. It's going to be upset with retirements soon enough.

6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
Bird retired bc of injury....Pierce isnt injured.
There's something to be said for walking away on your own terms, retiring while still "on top" of your game. Being a Celtic he has witnessed numerous "teammates" end their careers on a whimper - Shaq, Sheed, probably JO, et al.

Pierce also has appreciation for his place in Celtic history...he has a chance to move up even higher on some NBA and Celtic all time lists in addition to still be healthy and good and getting 15 million a season for the next 2.
Literally no reason for him to retire.
Remember he's married now.
Choice A. Make millions playing a game with your buddies.
Choice B. Sit at home listening to the wife all day.
You make the call.
