Did Iman Crossover Pierce or Did He Trip Him? (Video)

Thought we witnessed another killer crossover tonight, but I’m on the fence on this one. It looks like Iman Shumpert crosses up Paul Pierce so badly that he drops him to the floor, but upon further review it seems as if Truth trips over Shumps foot. Hard to tell conclusively, so I’ll let you decide. Knicks took the game 109-98.

The “All-NBA GM Dream Team”

Nowadays, the NBA is filled with “Big 3s” and teams stacked with multiple superstars. The philosophy behind assembling these teams is correct, as the NBA truly is a star driven league. The downfall behind it however, is that not all stars can play together. The Boston Celtics’ “Big 3″ of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen delivered a championship. Miami’s “Big...

Stevens said the Celtics didn't get a clean look in the end, do you agree?

The last play of the game wasn't shocking to me. It's happened before, and it happens often. As great as Rondo is, he has a flaw, and it's an issue that former Celtic greats point out. It's also obvious to many Celtics fans. Rondo's over dribbling of the basketball can hurt the Celtics, more often then not. Rondo was a +24 during Monday's game against Philly...

Why the Nets could win the East

At the beginning of the year, the Nets were in shambles. They were at the bottom of the East, KG and Paul Pierce were doing horrible, and Jason Kidd seemed overmatched as a head coach. However, that changed as the season went on. The Nets have had one of the best records in the East since the All-Star break. The Nets are playing small ball with Pierce at the 4, KG at the 5, and Shaun...

Paul Pierce Says Jeff & Marquis Teague are Ugliest Brothers in NBA (Video)

  Don’t know if they’re two teammates in the NBA that talk more trash than Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Nothing is off limits once they hit the court as Jeff and Marquis Teague found out on Friday night when the Atlanta Hawks faced the Brooklyn Nets. I guess Pierce was trying to get under Jeff’s skin by stating that he and his brotherly Marquis (who is a teammate of Pierce...

Paul Pierce Becomes 18th Member of 25K Club

It’s still weird that Paul Pierce plays for another team not named the Celtics after so many good years in Boston, but it’s easy to believe he recently became just the 18th player in NBA history to score at least 25,000 career points. “It’s hard not to [think about it],” said Pierce, who finished with 13 points on 5-for-14 shooting. “Everybody’s talking about it.

Three stories of the Boston Celtics season

I want to tell three stories about the 2013-2014 Boston Celtics. Two are so closely related, they are essentially the same story. One story is the night on January 17th, the day that Celtics point-guard Rajon Rondo returned to the Boston Celtics line-up. That was a fun night. It started with Rondo’s cryptic tweet the Monday before the Friday the 17th tip-off: 29,233,380 secs ...
