Found October 21, 2013 on Brooklyn Balling:
Terry spent the 2012-13 season with Boston before heading over to Brooklyn in "The Trade" The Brooklyn Nets haven't played since last Thursday (a home win vs the Miami Heat) and don't play again until Wednesday (in Boston versus the Celtics). However, that doesn't mean new developments and news surrounding the team stop in any way. The much-anticipated visit of the Nets to Boston this week is losing much of its vigor as the two main players sent to Brooklyn from the Celtics in June's trade, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, won't suit up for action on Wednesday. The Nets or Jason Kidd didn't give much of a specific reason for why the pair won't play, but it's likely tied to the unnecessary emotions and distractions the return would lead to. Looks like Brooklyn would just rather have the long-time Celtics face their old fans in a more ceremonious way during the regular season. Another former Celtic in Jason Terry, who has ye...

Pierce, KG skip game in Boston

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett will wait until the regular season to play in Boston. The two former Celtics will skip the Brooklyn Nets' preseason game in Boston on Wednesday, as expected. Pierce had said since the pair was acquired over the summer that he didn't want his first game back in Boston to be an exhibition. The first regular-season meeting between the teams in...

Pierce, Garnett hope to lead Nets on title run

Paul Pierce has seen it happen. He played on one of those teams that started as potential and turned into potent, the 2007-08 Celtics winning 66 games and an NBA championship in the first season after Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen joined him in Boston. Now Pierce and Garnett play for the Brooklyn Nets, whose roster is even more accomplished - and certainly more expensive - than those...

Garnett to LeBron: Butt out

LeBron James was sticking up for a teammate. Kevin Garnett said to butt out. Now, isn't this fun? Garnett was responding to James' recent remarks about how much, uh, heat Ray Allen took when he left the Boston Celtics to sign with James' Miami team as a free agent before last season. "The first thing that I thought was like, 'Wow, Ray got killed for leaving...

Paul Pierce is coming back to Boston! To eat.

While Paul Pierce will not be playing in Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets in Boston, he will be back in town.

Jason Kidd Won’t Play Pierce Or Garnett In Boston On Wednesday

Boston fans will have to wait until January 26th to show their appreciation for both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Kidd made his final decision to sit the future hall of famers out yesterday. “As of right now, those two won’t play in Boston,” Kidd said. “They’ll play in the final (preseason) game (in Miami on Friday).” Both Pierce and Garnett will most likely get a big...

Celtics need patience during rebuilding phase

When the Boston Celtics parted with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in a blockbuster trade, they were left with a huge rebuilding job focused on three areas. Those are offense, defense and patience. Throw in the departure of coach Doc Rivers and the arrival of NBA neophyte Brad Stevens as his replacement and the 17-time NBA champions face a bleak future. Pierce and Garnett are with...

The NBA's new "rivalry" between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat is a farce

The NBA and the media are trying to play up the new "rivalry" between the two-time champion Miami Heat and the new-look Brooklyn Nets. LeBron James made a few comments last week about Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett (as well as Doc Rivers) leaving the Celtics, a year after ripping Ray Allen for doing the same thing. Despite the fact that the circumstances were not exactly...

Boston Celtics 2013-14 Season Preview

Pierce, KG are in town, but get night off with rest of Nets starters

KG, Pierce will sit out Wednesday's game in Boston

I don't think it comes to a shock that both KG, and Pierce sit out this Wednesday. They shouldn't play a preseason game in Boston, the game won't matter, and Rondo isn't out there playing. I do worry about the health of KG and Pierce. The game is on January 26th. I recall KG's first year in Boston, and he was out with the abdominal strain when the C's played...

Your Celtics Life week in review... 10/20/13

This week was probably a bit emotional for many Celtics fans, as our current Celtics roster traveled to Brooklyn, where former captain Paul Pierce had to play against his old team for the first time. As bizarre a sight it was for Celtics fans to see The Truth in anything but green and white, it was probably much weirder for Pierce himself as he lined up against his old team. Pierce...
