Found July 03, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Pierce and KG will play for the Nets next season It finally happened and we all lived it with a mixed feeling of sadness and hope for the future ahead. Last Thursday we were struck with the news of the interest of the Brooklyn Nets in acquiring both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Right after losing Doc to the Clippers, we didn´t expect the rumor to become real and progress so quickly. The trade bubble grew increasingly fast until it burst at Draft night: Kevin Garnett was asked to allow the trade and soon after it was agreed on (it will be official on July 12th): The Celtics traded the captain (Pierce) and the heart of the Ubuntu Celtics (Garnett) to the Brooklyn Nets. That huge piece of news was the main topic in our 11th podcast on the Celtics in Spanish. Brooks can be a valuable player for our team We discussed in length about the pieces of the trade, the importance of the three first round picks acquired from Brooklyn and the possible future of the players involved in the...

Saying Goodbye to The Captain, Paul Pierce

When you think of the Boston Celtics you think winning, loyalty, and tradition.

You think of the 21 numbers that have been retired, forever immortalizing the legends that have donned the green and white. You think of guys like Bill Russell, Bob Cousy...

Final Thoughts & Farewell To Paul Pierce & KG

Nothing is forever. With every victory and every defeat, we must learn to enjoy and savor every moment. It will not last forever.

Truth and Ticket: Thank you

Click to view slideshow. I was fortunate enough to be at both Paul Pierce’s first, and last games as a Boston Celtic. In Feb. of 1999, the NBA lockout ended, and to encourage fans to come watch the C’s, they gave away tons of Opening Night tickets. My friend and I won two from a local radio station and watched Paul score 19 points in a loss to the Raptors. Fellow NBA rookie Vince...

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, LeBron James Atop Highest Net Worth In NBA, According To Report

  According to a report from Wealthx.com, Kobe Bryant unsurprisingly has the highest net worth in the NBA at $220 million. Endorsements throughout 15 years in the NBA from adidas, Sprite, McDonalds, Upper Deck and Spalding, Nike, Coca-Cola and most recently Turkish Airlines will certainly lead to that kind of success.

Boston Bruins: Boston and Dallas make blockbuster trade

Two weeks ago, Boston sports were basically given the death sentence. The Boston Bruins lose a heartbreaker to the Blackhawks, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were traded, Ray Allen wins a championship in a Heat uniform, and then of course Aaron Hernandez disappoints millions with his actions.
