Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh among 16 inducted into Basketball Hall of Fame as part of Class of 2021

Nine teams passed on Paul Pierce in the 1998 NBA draft, and if you think he doesn't remember each and every one of them, then you don't know Paul Pierce. The newly inducted Basketball Hall of Famer called out by name -- in order -- the teams with the first nine picks that year and thanked them for allowing him to slip to the Boston Celtics. Bosh discussed his arrival in Miami, when Heat executive Pat Riley offered one of his NBA championship rings and said it could be returned when they won one together; they won two, and Bosh finally returned the bauble Saturday night.
