LOS ANGELES (AP) Paul Pierce decided to return for his 19th and last season in the NBA, convinced the Los Angeles Clippers can make a successful run to their first league title.

The 10-time All-Star first disclosed his decision Monday in a posting on The Players' Tribune and later expanded on it at the team's media day. He turns 39 on Oct. 13, the same birthdate as coach Doc Rivers.

"The reason for me coming back is this group," he said. "This group is talented enough to win a championship. I want to come back and give it one more try and help them get over the top."
