Paul Pierce has every right to want the night he gets his number sent to the rafters all to himself.
That being said…..
HOW THE HELL ARE WE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!
I don’t want to talk about this, debate this and get all worked up about this cuz it’s all so stoooopid but…..
This all should have been worked out in the Preseason. It’s not like IT’s injury situation was some big secret. You knew roughly when he had a chance to be back playing. You certainly knew which dates the Cavs would be in town.
Why was PP Night scheduled for a game against Cleveland??????
The blame for all of this has to fall squarely on the Celtics Front Office. This should NOT be a story right now. The team is having an amazing season in the face of the Hayward situation and never ending drama about tribute videos is just plain ridiculous.
You honored IT’s wishes not to show a video well now you HAVE to honor Pierce’s wish to get his night all to himself. If they run an IT Video even during a Third Quarter time-out it will be the FIRST question asked of Pierce after the game and he should not have to talk about another player let alone a guy who was here for TWO YEARS.
DO THE RIGHT THING CELTICS. LET PAUL PIERCE HAVE HIS NIGHT THE RIGHT WAY.
