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.

Boston Celtics & Brooklyn Nets: Trade Thoughts

I remember July of 2007. It was an interesting, strange time for me as a basketball fan. I had been following Kevin Garnett's career in Minnesota for so long, that even though I had never once set foot in the state of Minnesota I thought of the Timberwolves as my team. I knew all of their history. I had spent hours on the various Timberwolves message boards. I had invested in...

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...
