Welp, the time has come for me to finally write THAT post. I was hoping to put off this post for another five years or so, but in the ever-changing world of sports, things can happen rather quickly. Such is the case with former Boston Celtic legend Paul Pierce, now a Brooklyn Net. Even after the blockbuster trade was announced on Friday, for some (including myself) it did not feel official.
Today however, The Truth himself put the finishing touches on the deal by thanking Boston and the Celtics via Twitter, and announcing that pictures were on the way.
I'm going to share some of my favorite Boston memories on my new Instagram account. Follow me @paulpierce and #THANKYOUBOSTON
With that, memories began flowing like a river on Pierce’s Twitter timeline. He is still posting as I type this and including the one above, you can see all of his photos on his Instagram.
Pierce is a class act and one of the greatest Celtics of all-time. He certainly deserves a place in the rafters with all of the other Celtic greats, and chances are very high that he will be there someday. For now though, he is off to New York where another chapter of his storied career will be written.
