I truthfully (pun intended) can’t even imagine what Paul Pierce looks like not wearing a green and white basketball jersey. No doubt that is going to be a very surreal and awkward moment when he first throws on that Nets jersey and plays his first game at Jay-Z’s palace in Brooklyn. At least he and KG will be playing together for a season and a half before they decide to call it quits. I also think I just became a little bit of a Nets fan in the process.
There is no way the Celtics have a winning record next year. I think that is obvious, but I just don’t know what to think of a team that now as Kelly Olynyk as it’s big man (Olynyk is no Perk that’s for sure). Next season is going to be a tough season to watch the Celtics no doubt, but the C’s are officially entered into the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes next year. Hopefully we can just get a few lucky bounces in the ping-pong ball machine.
I never thought I would say it but the Paul Pierce era is officially over and a transition period has undoubtedly set in. It’s been a fun ride.
