Found June 29, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Pic by RHurstDesigns. Curious to see if Garnett goes back to his #21 (similar to Ray going back to #34 with the Heat) or if he sticks with #5. My guess is he sticks with 5. Really hard to see Paul Pierce in another jersey. I hate the system in the NBA where you have to suck and root for losses in order to rebuild.
