I really wanted MP back in green, but for whatever reason that didn't happen. I get that he was a Jeff Green replacement for a season, but I still wanted his defense, and his locker room presence. When I saw him sitting on the Raptors bench. I was thinking what a waste, he should be on our team. I'm not over it either Pietrus.
"I can’t get over it. I cannot," admitted Pietrus. "I’ll be honest with you guys. I just can’t because Boston was what I like to do -- fight, protect your jersey and that’s what I like to do. It is what it is. You never know, hopefully I’ll be back. Cross your fingers."
"I would love to play with those guys in the locker room -- KG, Paul Pierce. Any time they want to make a championship run, it would be great for me to play for them," said Pietrus, who called the 2011-12 Celtics the best team he has played for. "I had fun. Boston is right here [pointing at his heart]. It is what it is. I have to move on. We’ve moved on already. But you never know. Life changes fast. Maybe I can wear that green again."
It would have been nice if he would have been waived a few weeks ago, or the Celtics should have brought him back in. The one thing that I have dislike for the past few seasons has been the come, and go mentality with the Boston bench. The bench is better right now, but losing a guy like MP is hard. I hope to see you back here again, but very unlikely.
