Paul Pierce thought of leaving Boston after Miami loss

Pierce was unsure of where the Celtics were going after that loss, since Ray and KG were free agents.

GreenLight Madness: Final Four – Seed #2 vs Seed #14

The second final four matchup features two huge three-pointers at different yet equally important times.  One was by The Truth, the other by Rondo.  I know which one I would vote for (hint: the ECF, on the road, is far more significant). #2 Seed: Paul Pierce’s Cold-Blooded Three: The Celtics dropped the first two games in Miami during the Eastern Conference Finals, the first...

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Still Going Strong, As Retirement Will Have to Wait

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have not really played together for a long time, relatively speaking. They spent a larger portion of their careers playing without each other than with each other, even if Garnett wearing Timberwolves royal blue seems like a distant memory. They have a long time to go, for instance, before they match the 12 years Bill Russell and Sam Jones shared the...

One thing is certain for this year’s tournament: you, the Celtics fans LOVE great plays at the expense of the Miami Heat.  The 2012 final matchup features two huge plays against the rival Heat.  The first was my personal favorite play, Paul Pierce’s cold-blooded three to seal Game 5 down in Miami.  His opponent?  A monster ownage block by the young Avery Bradley against...
