Paul Pierce may not be a Boston Celtic anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to fade off to sunset, either. Thanks to the lovely photo hogs at TMZ, they caught a pretty comical reaction when they inquired how it felt being traded at his advanced age: Paul’s reaction was CLASSIC — “Who says it’s [...]The post Paul Pierce: I plan on playing 10 more years appeared first on The NBA Passionista .

How the hell did TMZ know Paul Pierce was at this supermarket in LA? They must have been stalking other celebrities and stumbled into Pierce.
Anyway… The Truth claims he’ll play another 10 years and win a championship next year.
They say nothing good ever comes easy. That you always enjoy victory that much more after you've tasted the pain of defeat. That it's always more gratifying to reach the mountain top when you've failed many times before.
This is true whether you're playing high school, college, or professional sports. Hell, it's true of life in general. Those who have never...
Although most Celtics' fans understand the reasons behind the trade, it doesn't make the reality of it any easier to accept. After 15 years as the heart and soul of this Celtics team, Paul Pierce will no longer be the Celtics' Captain. KG wasn't here as long, but he was a Celtic through and through nonetheless. I do understand why Danny made the trade...
The trade is finally official today. Classy move by the organization, I'd expect nothing less.

Yesterday, while attending Boston's summer league victory, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee sat down to speak about Paul Pierce's and Kevin Garnett's legacies. Here's what they had to say.
Lee on wishing Pierce had retired a Celtic:
“As a player and as a fan watching him growing up, you kind of wish that he did. But it’s a business. The only thing I can say is it’s...
As expected the Heat have to be favorites for the NBA title next year, but the Pierce and KG to Brooklyn trade does make things interesting. A starting five of Brook Lopez, KG, Pierce, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams is one of the best starting five in the league and could give the Heat a run for their money. They presumably would pose serious match-up problems with this big lineup...
Celtics thank Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in today’s Boston Globe.
This is pretty great.
The deal that the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets agreed to during last month’s NBA Draft has become official today with the opening of the NBA offseason trade window.
The deal sends Celtics veterans Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn and signals a definite start to the C’s rebuilding period.
Here’s a full breakdown of the deal:
Today is when the Celtics/Nets trade that sends Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn can be completed.
In anticipation, the Celtics placed the following full-page ad in the Boston Globe today:
It’s impossible to find the words to express what those two (along with Ray Allen, Doc Rivers and others) did to this franchise to finally bring it out of the championship drought....

The Boston Celtics have moved on from an unforgettable era, and a Celtic great thinks the latest players shipped out of Boston still have fuel left in their tanks.
Larry Bird, Indiana Pacers president, believes Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett still have game in their veteran shoes.
“I think they got plenty left,” Bird told ESPN Monday during the Orlando Summer League...
ESPNs famous “Body Issue” landed today, and it featured quite a few basketball stars. The poses are always a little suspect (remember that part in Austin Powers where they’re constantly holding stuff in front of their junk? That was a bit more natural), but I’ll say it, the bods are chiseled. Take John Wall for instance – guy’s injured a lot, but he clearly spends his...
In less than 48 hours, the Celtics and Nets will finalize their mega-deal, and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett will officially be gone. It's going to be tough to see them go, but at the very least most Celtics fans understand the deal. Boston needs to rebuild, and picking up three first round picks in exchange for two guys on the wrong side of 35 is a good deal for the long term...
