Paul Pierce

  1. Tyson Chandler is to Dallas as Kevin Garnett is to Boston? Dirk says true.

    Dec 20, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    tchandler_Mavs

    Last season, 26 games into the season, Dallas was 19-7 and it went on to a 55-win season. This season their offensive production is almost identical, but the Mavs look like a different, better team. One you might really be scared of come the playoffs. They are 21-5 heading into a showdown with a rejuvenated…

  2. Shaq is back and there is a party in Boston, complete with alley-oops

    Dec 20, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    i

    You can watch the video below to see Shaquille O’Neil throw down the alley-oop over Jeff Foster. On the fast break. And if you want you can pretend that Shaq ran the fast break and didn’t just cherry pick while you watch it. And you can pretend that Paul Pierce didn’t cherry pick as well,…

  3. To start off the weekend right, watch Nate Robinson flip over Paul Pierce

    Dec 17, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Really, nothing will get you more in the mood for a fun weekend than watching Nate Robinson try to recreate his Shrek and Donkey move with Glen Davis from the finals by jumping on the back of Paul Pierce. And Pierce keeps right on running, doing his airplane thing. And Robinson just drops. Enjoy. Well,…

  4. Video: Paul Pierce’s game winner, Stoudemire’s almost answer

    Dec 16, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    i-1

    It was one of the most dramatic endings to a game this season — and worth watching again. Paul Pierce with the veteran move trying to drive, getting his body into Stoudemire then hitting the step back. Stoudemire answering with a three to win the game — but just about .02 seconds too late (and…

  5. Game of the night: Welcome back to big-time basketball, New York

    Dec 16, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce was taking bows after a December regular-season game. Spike Lee was out on the court yelling at the referees and the Celtics. The biggest stars were spectacular on a court lit like a stage. There was an impressive game-winner and almost a stunner that topped it — the best ending to a game…

  6. Rajon Rondo to play, Shaq to sit for Celtics Thursday

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    Oneal_peace

    Remember all that talk about resting Rajon Rondo’s sore hamstring and him taking some games off? Forget we ever said that. What we meant was Shaquille O’Neal was going to take a night off. That is what is happening Thursday against Philadelphia — Rondo is in and Shaq is out. Paul Pierce also is going…

  7. What is the deal with the Celtics and superstar-less teams?

    Nov 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    There’s something bizarre with these Celtics. They have three losses, and two of them are to teams without or missing their superstar. First they lost to the Cavaliers, which is odd since they don’t have you-know-who anymore, after they beat you-know-who the night before. But it was a back-to-back so maybe it was just one…

  8. Defending Rajon Rondo

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo’s outlandish point guard-ery this season is even more remarkable considering his obvious offensive flaw; Rondo is five years into his NBA career and yet his jump shot is still weaning. There are other wildly successful NBA players with holes in their games, but in some cases, there are institutional limits to prevent teams…

  9. Paul Pierce mocks LeBron in postgame tweet

    Nov 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Just another one of the 82, nothing special about this game… yeah, right. Lest you think the Celtics didn’t get a little extra enjoyment out of last night’s win over Miami, check out Paul Pierce’s postgame tweet: It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis LeBron can add…

  10. Dallas sags off Rajon Rondo for the win

    Nov 9, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    O.J. Mayo said recently that Rajon Rondo is the player he’d most want to play with because of how he sets teammates up. During the Nuggets broadcast last night, Kenyon Martin came on for a while and during that time said that Rondo is a better point guard than Derrick Rose. But Dallas didn’t fear…

  11. Delonte West on locker room fight: nothing to see here, move along

    Nov 1, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Delonte West

    Delonte West addressed the media on a locker-room brawl with Von Wafer last week, saying it’s all good. Don’t know why you’re all worked up about it. It was no big deal that I just jumped a guy in the locker room. Not sure I can swallow all of that, but are the quotes, via…

  12. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  13. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  14. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  15. On the eve of the season, one more trip back to the finals

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:35 PM EDT

    The last Friday night before the season starts. A chance to kick back, relax and take one more walk through last year’s NBA finals. Before it officially becomes history and we start watching the path to the next championship.

  16. Paul Pierce still The Truth, has new ink to prove it

    Oct 22, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Pierce_truthtat

    Paul Pierce is ready for the season, ready for another serious run at a ring. How can we tell? Because he got a new tattoo. Of course. What, you thought we could tell because he leads the Celtics in scoring this preseason with 14 points a game on 51.7 percent shooting? No. It’s preseason, what…

  17. Paul Pierce hits game winner so he can make postgame dinner reservation

    Oct 14, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    Pierce_bdaywinner

    Who says veteran players don’t have motivation in the preseason? Paul Pierce lobbied to stay in the game then knocked down a 19-foot jumper with 8 seconds left to give the Boston Celtics 104-101 win over the Knicks in Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. Why would he do that for a preseason game? “I got…

  18. The Celtics bond in the shadow of the Green Monster

    Oct 10, 2010, 9:21 AM EDT

    fenway

    The Celtics are getting back to that whole “chemistry first” thing that took them so far in 2008. That’s been a primary focus for them at camp and in the preseason, trying to get close to one another like the “Ubuntu” crowd was two years ago.  They’ve spent a lot of nights just doing team…

  19. Kevin Garnett admits he's an ass%&@$ (plus talks Heat and losing Game 7)

    Oct 5, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is a private person. Not unreasonable, but on a team that now has Nate Robinson and Shaquille O’Neal, it stands as a stark contrast. The KG we see is the one on the court — focused and intense. He makes no apologies for that. And if you want to use another, more direct…

  20. Kevin Garnett is rested and healthy. Fear the Celtics.

    Sep 25, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is still the beating heart and key player for the Celtics. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are crucial. Rajon Rondo’s importance grows daily. Kendrick Perkins and the O’Neals matter in the middle. Donkey and Shrek matter off the bench. But last season, Garnett’s health determined the Celtics fate. Which is why this quote…

  21. Quote of the day: Paul Pierce on the look in Tom Thibodeau's eyes

    Sep 17, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    “Coach Thibs has square eyeballs from watching so much videotape.” –Boston’s Paul Pierce, on the work habits of former Celtics assistant and now Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. From Bulls.com.

  22. NBA Season Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 15, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32 during the regular season, but 17-17 down the stretch as key players got rest and healthy for the playoffs. Then they played like the 2008 Celtics in the postseason and advanced all the way to Game 7 of the NBA Finals before falling. Head Coach: Doc Rivers, back for what may well…

  23. Brandon Jennings: "I guess in three years, me, Tyreke Evans, and Stephen Curry should team up, too."

    Aug 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings has weighed in to TMZ on all the team-ups going on and it’s about what you’d expect. He says that all these team-ups that are going on (and he lumps Boston in with Miami) are bad because it lowers the competition, that “everyone’s trying to play together instead of competing.” He mentions he’s…

  24. Paul Pierce thinks the Celtics need some 'special time' in training camp

    Aug 22, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Ubuntu. You remember Ubuntu, don’t you? The magical phrase that Doc Rivers used in 2007-2008 to bring the Celtics together under a team concept of sacrifice and unity. And though the “Ubuntu” tagline was phased out as the years went on, it’s been the formula for all the success Boston has achieved since the Big…

  25. Paul Pierce wants to play one year in Europe before he retires

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    If you talk to Mychal Thompson — the former No. 1 overall pick who may be best known for being part of the back-to-back champion Showtime Lakers — he speaks glowingly about his time playing in Greece. A lot of players do, they like the overseas experience. Paul Pierce wants that experience and told Comcast…
