Paul Pierce

  1. Michael Beasley may have broken wrist in China

    Aug 29, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Reports out of China are a little sketchy, but it could be bad news for Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley. First there is this tweet from Rijay Wang (via Hoopshype): Report: Michael Beasley suffered wrist injury in Sunday night at China Championships, had to get wrist re-examined, possible wrist break. Here is the link to the…

    Screen shot 2011-08-26 at 5.32.59 PM

    The minds and hearts of men are truly curious in their workings; they devise brilliant plans, painful follies, touching connections, terrible deceits, and on occasion, ideas of incredible ingenuity and the potential to change the world. They also, apparently, conjure the idea to create a small edible figurine of Paul Pierce for undoubtable commercial gains.…

  3. Paul Pierce comes to Home and Garden Television Saturday

    Aug 17, 2011, 3:31 PM EST

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    Paul Pierce went to Inglewood High School, a stone’s throw from the Fabulous Forum, where Magic Johnson ran the Showtime Lakers. But the neighborhood around that building has always been one of the poorest, more troubled hoods in all of Los Angeles. Inglewood High does not have a lot of resources, so Pierce wanted to…

  4. Video: Paul Pierce is looking for some super kids

    Aug 10, 2011, 9:34 AM EST

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    Paul Pierce has a sense of humor. As evidence, we bring you this video, which is cheesy enough to have been made in Wisconsin, but it works. Pierce put the video together with Sports Illustrated for Kids to help with their awards program. We couldn’t help but pass it along. Hat tip to my man…

  5. Rajon Rondo’s elbow still not right after dislocation

    Jul 13, 2011, 8:59 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Wade and Boston Celtics Rondo tangle in second half of Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    It was the most gruesome sight of the playoffs (unless you’re a Lakers fan, then it was Game 4 against Dallas) — Rajon Rondo falling in the series against Miami and his elbow bending the wrong way. An entire nation winced at the replay. Months later, hanging out at his youth camp in his native…

  6. Paul Pierce knocked out of World Series of Poker

    Jul 12, 2011, 11:56 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce still has his championship ring, but he will not get a bracelet to go with it. Paul Pierce has been knocked out of the World Series of Poker according to CSN New England. After surviving the first day of the World Series of Poker on Sunday, Pierce was eliminated from the main event…

  7. Paul Pierce reaches second day at World Series of Poker

    Jul 11, 2011, 8:02 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    If Paul Pierce gets a bad beat at poker, does he need a wheelchair to take him away from the table, only to come back just fine a few minutes later? We have yet to find out, because apparently Pierce can play — he has advanced to the second day of the World Series of…

  8. Kevin Durant, union rep for the Thunder, unaware of CBA expiration date

    Jun 29, 2011, 2:10 PM EST

    kevin-durant-union

    Well, this is awkward. Kevin Durant is supposed to be the union representative for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Each team typically has a primary and an alternate player rep, and Durant is listed as the primary for his club on the NBAPA’s website. In this time of intense labor negotiations and with a lockout almost…

  9. Report: Danny Ainge willing to trade anyone on the roster

    Jun 22, 2011, 1:38 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Four

    On one side of the scale, you have Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers all coming back, and you think they are not going to break this group up yet, they are going to make one more run. On the other side of the scale, you have the Kendrick Perkins…

  10. LeBron James third highest earning athlete in America

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:53 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James shouldn’t flaunt that after he loses in the NBA finals he goes back to living a charmed life and we go back to our lives… but the dude is raking it in. According to Sports Illustrated, LeBron is the third highest earning athlete in the United States in 2011. Tiger Woods and Phil…

  11. Paul Pierce remembers being drafted into a lockout

    Jun 8, 2011, 5:24 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Delonte West, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green walk off the court at the end of their overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    Paul Pierce was the 10th overall pick in 1998, which was the last year that the NBA went through a lockout. Recently, he told CNNSE.com’s A. Sherrod Blakely about what that experience was like, and some of the disadvantages that the rookies of the class of 1998 had to face: “Me, I had no knowledge…

  12. Ainge: Perkins trade not the reason team lost

    May 16, 2011, 12:03 PM EST

    Danny Ainge

    The moment the trade of Kendrick Perkins went through, you knew this is how it would go down — when the Celtics fell out of the playoffs the trade was going to be blamed. Danny Ainge was going to get blamed. Throw in an early second round exit and you have Ainge getting a lot…

  13. One way or another, expect Celtics roster shakeups

    May 13, 2011, 11:48 AM EST

    Boston Celtics Delonte West, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green walk off the court at the end of their overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    It looks like Boston is going to make one more run at it — Doc Rivers is coming back, Ray Allen will pick up the option on his contract, Rajon Rondo will get healthy and whenever next season starts the Celtics will get the band back together. But expect changes around them. And maybe even…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  15. In the end, it was about the Heat execution

    May 12, 2011, 2:14 AM EST

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    End of game execution — their best players stepping up in the clutch. That was the modus operandi Boston’s “big three” of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce for years. They were better than you at both ends when it mattered most. That is why championship banner 17 flies in Boston. Miami’s “big three”…

  16. Doc Rivers “leaning heavily” toward coming back

    May 11, 2011, 11:36 PM EST

    Doc Rivers

    Apparently Doc Rivers wants to do more than just hang out around Mike Krzyzewski’s practices next season. After a season where the conventional wisdom was he was walking away at the end of the season, he said after the Celtics were eliminated Wednesday you probably will have him to kick around next season, as reported…

  17. NBA Playoffs: James, Wade defeat Celtics, their demons

    May 11, 2011, 11:24 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    In the summer of 2007, a former league MVP and a perennial All-Star joined a franchise player to form a group that, when healthy, dominated the NBA’s Eastern Conference and kept its two best players from reaching an NBA Finals. They took out LeBron James‘ Cavaliers in 2008 in an amazing seven-game series that culminated…

  18. Celtics will be back for one more run, but they shouldn’t

    May 11, 2011, 10:47 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Four

    The time has now passed. The window has closed. Make no mistake, the Celtics are still a good team. Bring them back next year and they will win 50-plus games and put up a fight in the playoffs. But they are not a great team. Nor will they be again with this group. Boston fought valiantly in…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Can Celtics’ veteran savvy, desperation fix many problems?

    May 11, 2011, 2:56 PM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James and Chris Boch react towards the end of the fourth quarter against the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    Through four games, the Miami Heat have exposed and exploited so many advantages against the Boston Celtics that it’s hard to logically pick the Celtics in Game 5 Wednesday night in Miami. A win and the Heat close out the series, and a Miami win seems as inevitable as David Caruso taking off his sunglasses…

  20. Miami big three says Celtics big three was its inspiration

    May 11, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    With the torch about to be passed — not willingly, but it may happen Wednesday night anyway — the Miami Heat are paying homage. They told Kevin Arnovitz at ESPN that without what Boston did in forming it’s big three back in the summer of 2007 — Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen coming to join…

  21. Celtics failure on final play symbolic of struggles

    May 10, 2011, 11:37 AM EST

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    For years, for much of this past regular season, this is where Boston thrived — they executed at the end of games. At the time they needed it most — a final shot in the last 19.5 seconds of regulation that would even their series with Miami — it fell apart. In an ugly fashion.…

  22. NBA Playoffs: The Heat outlast the Celtics

    May 9, 2011, 11:21 PM EST

    LeBron James, Jermaine O'Neal

    The first half of Miami’s 98-90 overtime win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals consisted of two very good teams executing very well. The second half of the game was a battle of wills — the kind of game the Miami Heat weren’t supposed to be able to win against the Celtics. They…

  23. He will play, but how good can Rondo be in Game 4?

    May 9, 2011, 11:45 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    The good news for the Celtics: An MRI of Rajon Rondo’s left elbow showed no break. Basically, it’s not going to get worse. The bad news: As expected, the swelling and pain got worse on Sunday, Doc Rivers said. There was a lot of ice and a lot of pain medication, as reported by the…

  24. Paul Pierce has strained Achilles, says he is day-to-day

    May 4, 2011, 12:50 AM EST

    Boston Celtics small forward Paul Pierce and head coach Doc Rivers react during a break in fourth quarter action against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in Miami

    Paul Pierce left the court and went back to dressing room midway through the first quarter of Game 2. He came back out and played in the second quarter and scored 8 points in the second half. But he did strain his left Achilles and told the media after the game he is day-to-day, according…

  25. Pierce avoids suspension, but James Jones gets a flagrant

    May 2, 2011, 7:17 PM EST

    Celtics Pierce is ejected by NBA official Molloy as teammate Garnett looks on after an altercation during fourth quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in Miami

    So the NBA has watched the tape (well, digital recording) of Game 1 of the physical Boston/Miami series and has made a few changes. The biggest news is that Paul Pierce will not get a suspension, reports Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Which is the only just move because he never should…
