How do Pierce & KG look as Brooklyn Nets?

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.

Final Thoughts & Farewell To Paul Pierce & KG

Nothing is forever. With every victory and every defeat, we must learn to enjoy and savor every moment. It will not last forever. I have prepared myself for years for the day Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were no longer Boston Celtics.

Paul Pierce Tribute: Once a Celtic, Always a Celtic (Video)

As Paul Pierce nears his departure from the TD Garden and the Boston Celtics headquarters and heads off to Brooklyn, there is some unfinished business with No. 34 here at Atlantic Twine. Pierce, who has been my favorite athlete in all of sports and poured his loyalty to the Celtics organization for 14 years, will take Kevin Garnett and himself to join Jason Kidd after July 12. The...

Financial implications of the Pierce/Garnett deal

It’s been a long couple of days.  We’re emotionally spent.  Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are no longer going to be Celtics and there’s definitely a lot of sadness attached to that. But I’m going to save the retrospectives for later.  Right now, I’m going to attempt to break this trade down to show you what it means for the Celtics financially. Outgoing salaries: ...

What started as a few glib comments during the NBA Draft has now evolved into a heated back-and-forth between the new Clippers coach and the popular ESPN personality. 

Paul Pierce’s Top 10 Moments As Celtic Includes Winning Championship, Finals MVP

No matter what team he suits up for next season — and how hard of a sight it may be for Celtics fans — Paul Pierce will always bleed green, and that’s The Truth.

Video: A Celtics tribute to Paul Pierce

No fan wants to see their favorite player (let alone a franchise type player) leave their team. It has happened before with Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and Charles Barkley. But it is the nature of the NBA business and no player is safe or un-tradable from a team. Paul Pierce isone of those players that many thouht he'd retire in green and white. Yet the Celtics made...

Next On Celtics’ List: Rajon Rondo Trade

Well, Celtics Nation, you knew this day was inevitable. The minute the Celtics created the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen in 2008, you knew that it would be an exciting but limited ride.

Celtics Aren't Bad Enough ... And That's Bad!

As wild as surprisingly entertaining as Thursday's NBA Draft was, the story of the night was the trade between the Celtics and Nets.  The headline was Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry heading to Brooklyn ... but the real story was the Celtics blowing it up and starting from the ground up.  That skims over what really happened.The Celtics are starting over.  This...

Saying goodbye to a legend

Well, it’s over. An end of an era.One of the hardest things to go through as a sports fan is watching your favorite player retire. A guy you grow up watching and idolizing. You’d go to the driveway after dinner and pretend you were him. You’d create fake scenarios of winning the championship on a buzzer-beating three. You buy their jerseys and wear them to school to see the...

Doc Rivers and Bill Simmons still going at it a day later

Doc on @WEEI about @BillSimmons: "He did everything he could to get me fired. Wrote letters, wanted to sit down w/ owners to talk about it." — Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) June 28, 2013 The quote I just retweeted is an outright, 100 percent lie. I'd be careful, Glenn. Seriously.

Jeff Van Gundy analyzed the trade that will send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. "I do think they're a championship-caliber team," Van Gundy said.
