The modern era of Boston Celtics basketball is defined by Paul Pierce, as he was the leader of their most-recent championship team. Once a sinking ship, the Celtics have consistently been contenders since 2007, aside from one down season. They have built a winning culture.
Transitioning from the “Big Three” era was nearly seamless, after the departure of Ray Allen. He left for the Heat, followed by the Celtics trading Pierce, and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn. Boston, meanwhile, let Rondo lead, before trading for Isaiah Thomas.
In retrospect, the Celtics likely wish they kept him, but their new squad nearly went to the NBA Finals, led by Jayson Tatum, anyway. If anything, last season saw Kyrie’s return stifle him, but Kemba Walker’s arrival boost him. His huge three, against the Bucks, led to Paul Pierce creating a viral handshake with him.
Paul Pierce led two viral moments, as Twitter is questioning his hair, and hairline, after a video clip of him, pregame, has also gone viral.
