"IN RONDO WE TRUST"

Celtics Blog Post New Entry

No way Pierce leaves Boston right?

I guess never say never is  to cliche. Pierce sat down for an interview over the weekend, and spoke about testing free agency.


"I think I am going to play this one out," he told the Globe. "I want to see what it feels like to be a free agent for once in my life. I think I am going to play this one out. A lot can change in two years. My body [may not] be where I want it to be, I could retire, a lot of things could happen. I love the game. I made as much money as I possibly can. It's about winning a championship and if I feel like it's the right thing to do, maybe so [come back]. If I solidify my third year, maybe they opt out, so it's about keeping your options open."


I understand that he said this, and maybe it wasn't the best thing to say, or hear from are stand point. But it was said. Pierce has come to far in green, to just walk away, and pack up. His legacy is almost compete in Boston, and hell he even spoke about retiring not so long ago. But it's hard to say how things can work out. Look at Karl Malone who spent almost two decades in Utah. In his final NBA season, he signed in LA for a crack at a title. Stockton did retire, and Malone would have never had  moved on without him.

I think Pierce's Stockton is Doc. With Doc staying in Boston. I just can't see Pierce playing for anyone else again. Both have an amazing connection with one another. I just can't see Pierce leaving. Maybe it's just denial.

I think Pierce is talking a lot of crap, as he so often does.

I think that if folks would read between the lines a little, they would find Pierce's comments pretty disturbing. In not so many words, he is saying that he is NOT down with the whole Rondo's Team thing. Not at all.

Mark my words, there will be serious problems between Pierce and Rondo.

I hope your wrong Paul. Because no championship if that happens.

Or else Rondo has to settle the matter early and aggressively by outplaying Pierce substantially. This is no time to defer, Rondo. You need to find out in the early going what Pierce's attitude is going to be, and how flexible he's going to be.

It seems like the regular season will be a time of testing things out. Once playoff time comes,its Rondo time again.

I agree, there could be a long process of feeling things out. But I think it will be much better if things get sorted out early
