He shared locker room with other fellow WTHHT members as Kedrick Brown, Vin Baker and Tony Delk and had the privilege of wearing Raef LaFrentz´s #45 before he became a member of the Celtics. He also had the honor of being the first Argentinian player to play in the NBA with the Sonics first and then with the Celtics. Today we will talk about a player that was a teammate of our captain Paul Pierce back when times were tougher for our team. It was the season after our biggest and longest playoff run since the Bird years, almost making it to the Finals before we fell against the New Jersey Nets of Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin. While we had had a successful season the year before, we lost valuable core players such as Kenny Anderson and Rodney Rogers. Instead we welcomed Vin Baker and JR Bremer. Wolkowyski played 24 minutes in 7 games for us, netting a total of 5 points and 1 rebound wearing Celtics green. He instantly became a worthy member of this section. His Celtic debut was on...

What Rondo has done so far this season has been nothing short of incredible By now it's pretty well known that Rajon Rondo is on a historic run in the assist department.

Recap: Celtics salvage season with huge victory over Thunder

So I may have reached a bit with my headline, but I needed that win. Fueled by Paul Pierce and Jeff Green, the Celtics beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100. While Pierce and Green deserve credit for strong individual performances, this truly was a team effort. The Celtics had 8 offensive rebounds. The bench cranked out 35 points. The defense came alive (in the 2nd and 3rd quarters...

Top Five Reasons Why Marcin Gortat to the Boston Celtics Makes No Sense

Jameer Nelson Breaks Paul Pierce Ankle (Video)

Ouch Paul, very ouch.  One of the worst crossover broken ankles I've seen in a very long time.  Jameer Nelson made a little head fake on Paul last night and Pierce bit hard, really hard.  He fell strait backwards and his right leg bent behind him and got trapped under his body.  Pierce would stay in the game and end up dropping 23 points (Jameer had 20.)  The Celtics also...

Experience wins in Celtics OT win

Paul Pierce has done this a million times. Early in games, late in games, in the middle, it does not matter when. Pierce knows exactly how to finish things off and how to brush off any failures. When he stepped into a wide-open 3-pointer with 2:10 left in overtime to break a 108-108 tie, it was old hat for him. For the Magic, it is not quite second nature to win these close games...
