Paul Pierce Thought About Leaving The Celtics


Paul Pierce not with the Celtics is like the Lakers without Kobe, just a thought no one can imagine happening.

For 14 years Paul Pierce has graced us in a Celtic uniform, but after the tough lost to the Miami Heat, Pierce really considered leaving Boston. He revealed his thoughts to

“It was difficult not only losing, but not understanding what was next,” Pierce said. “A lot of that went in my head after we lost. It was like is [Kevin Garnett] gonna retire? Are we gonna rebuild? Am I gonna be playing somewhere else? A lot of things went through my head.”

“It really did cross my mind,” Pierce said. “The way last year went with the trade rumors, the possibility of me being traded the possibility of us rebuilding, it was hard not to think about it, sometimes it wears on you mentally because you can’t know what your future is gonna be or what’s gonna be your next step. 

“I’m in a position to where I really didn’t wanna be part of being in a rebuilding situation, especially after playing over the last five years on teams that were capable of winning a championship. At this point of my career, I only have a few years left, you want to maximize those years.”

But towards the end of the interview, Pierce reveals what everyone thinks, he just cant see himself playing anywhere else.

“I was telling somebody the other day I’m pretty much institutionalized [in Boston],” Pierce said. “If I went somewhere else I couldn’t see it. Hopefully I can be here a lot longer than even my playing days. Just to help along with coaching and management, I’ve really given some thought to that, giving back to what the game has given to me. And I hope I can continue to do that in Boston.”

  • I have seen many useful points on your internet site about pcs. However, I have got the judgment that netbooks are still less than powerful more than enough to be a good choice if you often do things that require a lot of power, like video editing and enhancing. But for world wide web surfing, statement processing, and majority of other popular computer work they are fine, provided you never mind the small screen size. Many thanks for sharing your notions.– vacation travel puppies

  • Great post right here. One thing I’d like to say is always that most professional areas consider the Bachelor Degree like thejust like the entry level requirement for an online diploma. Though Associate Diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing your current Bachelors opens many entrances to various occupations, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online variants of their qualifications but typically for a greatly higher price than the corporations that specialize in online education plans.– vacation travel puppies
