Paul Pierce like any aging star in sports is now faced with the decline in his skills, the possibility of his career ending, and most importantly, wondering when and where it will end. Pierce is aware that many a great athlete has ended his career in a different city.  Pierce is prepared for that, so now the waiting game is set to begin. Pierce could easily retire, and enjoy the privilege of playing for one singular franchise, and going out on his terms.  Pierce wants to play a few more years, so now he’s stuck with the fact that he might play elsewhere. According to Yahoo Sports, Greg Dickerson, a sideline reporter with CSNNE is reporting that close to Paul Pierce are suggesting that Pierce doesn’t believe he’ll be a Celtic next season. Dickerson for his part, doesn’t think Pierce will be a Celtic anymore either. “I don’t think they will (bring Pierce back),” Dickerson said Sunday on CSNNE. “And I know that the company that Paul Pierce hangs around in, they do not believe – and I don

  • Piece, smart enough to stay for less, Garnett will stay, and with the return of Rondo the Celtics stay healthy and make a run at 18. Add Sully and give the bench lots of minutes, it can be done. Paul Pierce in another uniform????? NOT!
  • I *think* that under the CBA either the Celtics HAVE to pay him $13M next year or release him. I do not believe they can bring him back for less. The players union doesn't let that happen.
  • Pierce will stay for less. He won't want to retire in any other uniform and he doesn't want to uproot his family right now.
  • Boston lets Pierce go & I stop watching the Celts.
    Celts have more class than that - Paul just has one more year on contract & he carried Celts during the bad years....show our stars the respect they deserve - keep Pierce!!
    Then Garnett stays & rondo & barbosa coming back this team with a little tweak can still contend, without Celts cannot contend.
  • It's well been established that Danny Ainge's time as President of Basketball Operation has expired. Danny needs to go flat-out and give a visionary the job to put a real Boston Celts team together. The last year what he did with the finest team in NBA history was totally sensing and to document he knows nothing about building a team. There are key positions needing to be filled (c, shooters,etc) and there needs to be some big money spent. Can't be on a championship level if you don't know how to get there and on the Cheap.
  • It's been fun watching the big pp play in Boston. All great players have to come to terms with father time. Paul need to take that reduced roll with the team or hang up the sneakers. People say they will stop watching, who you fooling. It is reality no one can play forever.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Report: Darrelle Revis' decision to come down to Patriots, Jets

The decision might be simple for Darrelle Revis if he hits free agency: winning versus money. The cornerback ultimately will choose between the New England Patriots and New York Jets this offseason, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on Mad Dog Sports Radio with Adam Schein on Thursday. “I believe that it will come down to the Patriots and the Jets,” Schefter. “I think the Jets...

Ndamukong Suh is biggest prize, risk in free agency

One of the most coveted free agents this offseason is defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. He's as dominant as any interior defensive tackle that the league has seen over the last decade.  I don't put him quite to the level of JJ Watt for reasons of versatility - Watt can play both outside and inside.  But for pure defensive tackles who constantly disrupt the middle, eating up at least...

Jaworski on Winston: 'I would not take him at that No. 1 pick

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski sure knows how to make a headline when it comes to the draft. A year after indicating that Johnny Manziel wouldn’t last three games in the NFL due to his playing style (started two games in 2014 prior to suffering an injury) Jaws took on yet another top quarterback prospect in the lead up to the 2015 NFL draft. ...

Gregg Popovich rips notion of NBA Finals games in July

The NBA is reportedly considering the idea of extending the regular season later into the summer. While there would still be an 82-game season, the idea would be to eliminate back-to-back games and not cram so many games into such a short span. Mark Cuban said last month that he thinks a more spaced-out schedule...Read More

Ortiz on Schilling controversy: 'It makes you angry'

David Ortiz unsurprisingly has his former teammate’s back.     Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling recently dealt with vile Twitter users who crossed the line with regard to his daughter, Gabby. Ortiz witnessed the controversy and can’t quite wrap his head around why anyone would tweet such vulgar things. “It’s kind of hard,” Ortiz told WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford...
