Paul Pierce, the NBA star who just announced his retirement in July, visited Anting town in Shanghai's Jiading district on Sept 4.

Pierce attended a series of cultural and sports activities in Anting during his visit.

He made clay figurines, a local handicraft, with young basketball fans, as well as trying his hand at Chinese calligraphy -- he wrote the Chinese characters for his nickname, "The Truth".

Local fans also got to test their basketball skills against the former MVP and ten-time NBA All-Star at a basketball exchange activity.

Pierce also presented awards to the top three winning teams of a local basketball competition.

Pierce was born in 1977 in Oakland, California, and joined the NBA in 1998. He played for the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, and Los Angeles Clippers during his long career.
