Without the aid of a safety harness, Paul Pierce hangs high from the rafters of TD Garden to tell you how he wants to add to the Celtics’ legacy and raise yet another championship banner in Boston. He’s like Batman in green.
The truth hurts, it can set you free and apparently the Truth aka Paul Pierce can also throw down a nasty two-handed smash plus the foul on Lavoy Allen for the and one.
You’ve probably forgotten all about them by now. Nothing left in the tank, nothing left to prove, too slow, too injury prone, too much mileage. Hmm…
You better hope you’re right, because here they come and what some call age. They call experience, grit, toughness, leadership, moxie, savvy, passion, desire, heart and these guys are at their best when the stakes get BIG.
If you were poised to drop 36 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists in 44 minutes of work like Paul Pierce did to the Hawks in Game 2 of the series. Pulling a Tim Tebow at the visitors center court with 1:15 still left in the game would probably earn you the nickname “The Truth” too.
Dear Celtics, trading Rajon Rondo would possibly be worst idea ever. Taking him away from a mix that includes Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett is on par with trading Tom Brady away from the Patriots (who I hate) and he just won’t look right in a non-Boston jersey. Why? Cause he’s a Celtic dammit, that’s why.
