PLAYERS: Paul Pierce
TEAMS: Boston Celtics

From NESN:

Paul Pierce wants to play basketball with you. No, seriously.

The Celtics’ captain was not impressed by the trampoline-aided aerial acrobatics of Lucky, the team’s mascot, but he is excited at the prospect of playing “H-O-R-S-E” with a “real” Celtics fan. A game from the Massachusetts Lottery offers a chance to play with Pierce, plus other prizes.

Paul Pierce, Celtics Escape With Victory But Blown Lead Offers Reminder That They Cannot Let Up

BOSTON — Paul Pierce’s shot went through the hoop and the crowd erupted, cheering wildly for a fourth straight victory by the Celtics.

Old man Paul Pierce is doing what Rajon Rondo did for Boston Celtics

When Celtics All Star Rajon Rondo was lost to a season ending injury he was dominating the NBA in triple doubles, even posting one in each of his final two games.  In Boston’s first contest without Rondo, Paul Pierce managed a trible double of his own.  During the C’s 5 game winning streak Pierce has continually put up some very Rondo-esque numbers.  His scoring is down...

Boston Celtics: Time to Sell. But not Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce.

With the recent news that Jared Sullinger will be out for the rest of the season, joining superstar point guard, Rajon Rondo, all hope of contention is lost. They could make a big trade to acquire talent, but it would cost all of their valuable pieces and long-term cap space, which is why Rudy Gay is not in Boston and why Josh Smith will not be in green either. With a healthy Rajon...

Kevin Garnett on Trade Rumors: “I Bleed Green, But It’s a Business”

KG has a no trade clause, but from these quotes it appears if the right trade came around he would be interested....

Like a good child...
