Celtics’ Paul Pierce farewell tribute video

Written by 

The Celtics honored Paul PIerce with a touching farewell video and a thunderous ovation from the crowd. Watch the video of the tribute video and his final introduction here via the CLNS Celtics coverage team.

BOSTON — Paul PIerce said before the game that he didn’t know if he would cry when he stepped before the Garden crowd. Doc Rivers said if he saw Pierce cry, he would cry internally.

As Pierce marched across the floor, spotlight on his tail, he did his vintage dice game intro celebration. Then he turned to the crowd as the stadium rumbled, holding a wave until one final salute.

Then after the first timeout, the Celtics ran one last tribute video to the Truth, which finally cued the waterworks.
