Do you get tired of watching Gary Tanguay try to make sense of what Donny Marshall is saying?
Ever sit in front of your television just flipping channels for the thirty minutes before the Celtics play?
No idea what to watch?
What to do?
How to act?
Do you find yourself laying face down mumbling about Blue Edwards and Nick Van Exel?
Have you ever spent the 30 minutes before a game walking an imaginary dog around your back porch?
Well, worry no more! You won't have that problem tonight. Because Paul Pierce will be on Wheel of Fortune at 7:30 right before the game!
Look out for me tonight on Wheel of Fortune #WheelNBA

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. Check out Pierce’s...
If you missed this game, wow I feel bad for you. Tonight was a vintage Paul Pierce game, led by an offensive explosion in the third quarter. The first half played at a much slower pace, dominated by the refs but the Celtics had the game in their control all night. Pierce led the Celtics with 24 and Bean was the leading scorer for the Flakers with 27. The Truth was obviously jacked...
BOSTON — This was not just another game. When the Celtics and Lakers play, even if their cumulative records are below .500 and their seasons have been more disappointing than triumphant, nobody in green or purple tries to give the old sports trope about every game counting the same. This game means a little extra, especially to Paul Pierce, born and raised in Inglewood, Calif....
Awesome round of quotes today from Celtics coach Doc Rivers, captain Paul Pierce, and center Kevin Garnett on the ongoing trade rumors that seem to pop up by the day. The most recent round of rumors have Kevin Garnett heading to Los Angeles for Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler. What do the Celtics think of these rumors? Let's start with Doc.
All from (the...
The Boston Celtics have won their last 5 games since Rondo went down with a torn ACL. The general consensus was that without Rondo and the advanced age of the Celtics, hopes of a title this season are effectively older. Celts head coach Doc Rivers said not to count the team out but at least one member of the franchise has acknowledged that he’s not willing to apart of a team that’s...
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...
Sure, the rumors are fun, but Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, shot them down Thursday when asked about the much talked about trade assets, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. He stated comfortably, that the most likely scenario is that the two will not be traded at the deadline.
According to ESPN:
On if he’s comfortable saying that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce...
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says the recent trade rumors around the teams star players have all been made up by the media. "All from [the media]," the Celtics' coach said

The familiar ''Beat LA!'' chant started in the third quarter.
It's easier to do that now than it was during most of the Lakers-Celtics rivalry. But there's still something special when the teams who have met in a record 12 NBA Finals face each other, even if they've been struggling just to reach the playoffs.
''No matter what direction these...
I am on record saying that the Celtics window has closed and it is time to blow up the team. KG and Paul Pierce would be considered valuable assets to teams who are in a position to make a NBA Finals run. Every trade should be explored by Danny Ainge at this point.
KG has a no trade clause, but from these quotes it appears if the right trade came around he would be interested....
The Celtics handily defeated the L.A. Lakers in Boston TD Garden Thursday night by a score of 116-95! A game that saw Celtics star Kevin Garnett reach the 25,000 Pt. level and be listed as the 16th top NBA scorer of all time.
However, even KG himself would say the more important story was that the Celtics gelled well, played tough defense, and maintained balanced team basketball...
