Paul Pierce says his 18th professional season will be his last if his new team, the Los Angeles Clippers, wins the 2016 NBA championship next June.

“If we win this year — win a championship — I’ll probably be done with basketball, just to be honest,” Pierce said at Clippers media day Friday. “It would be a dream — to be home, to be able to carry the championship trophy down Manchester Boulevard — it would be a dream come true. I’m excited for this moment.”
