Trading Ray Allen, Paul Pierce Would Have Been 'Scary' for Celtics Coach Doc Rivers (Video)

Telling a player he has been traded, only to call back a short time later to tell him he actually has not been traded after all, could be described a number of ways. Awkward. Uncomfortable.

Ray Allen was told he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies: This fun ride probably shouldn’t be happening

Paul Pierce knows how to make plays when the chips are down. That is what he has done for years and years. This moment would be no different. Twice he found a way to crush the Magic and put away a game where the Celtics just could not put it away. Not until the end. Not until Paul Pierce laid down The Truth. And Pierce showed that, while the Magic might be a grittier, harder working...

KG sometimes feels like a shark

  Iman Shumpert had a nice play there... dunking on KG, but he got the technical foul.  That seemed to get the guys going a little bit.  In the Sunday New York Post, Shumpert explained how it made KG feel like a shark... and how it pissed Paul Pierce off a little.
