Celtics Morning Joe: Pierce is the hardest to say goodbye to

Posted by shawn cassidy on June 28, 2013 at 5:00 AM

The day was going to come. We didn't know when or how, but the day was slowly creeping in. That day happened June 27th, 2013. The Boston Celtics ended the Pierce era quick, and with minimal warning. We knew for sometime that Doc was gone, but the idea of Pierce out of here wasn't much of a reality until Thursday morning.

Without sorrow life is zero we must accept fate's arrow even if it's something that will take time to heal from. If our efforts are thorough maybe will be just fine.Sorrows nicely shape our mind into something that may have never been. It feels like there is no tomorrow. Our sadness  has become contagious in this fast paced world we live in.  Love leaves us. Hope fades fast. Faith never seems to last.
The sorrow corrupts my mind this morning. Can't think hard enough, and good enough.

The pain erupts inside, and my sanity drops.Time stops? I wish it could, how about five years ago? A setting quietness throughout Boston Thursday night. In a dangerous whisper(tweet) that gave me shivers.The despair settled over me, as Danny put down his calming deadly wrath. I felt like I was wrapped in a blanket of sadness.

The end of the end it is. I almost can see them letting me free from the traps set in my mind. Trying to escape my pain is making me insane.My emotions aren't here yet. I wish I had the perfect words for this moment. I wish I could leave all of you with words of wisdom. All things must pass is true. But was it time? Danny's trade could end up being the moment where he lost his head. It feels like we've said goodbye long before this final farewell. I know this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to losing Paul Pierce.

A sad day indeed. Ainge's obsession about Larry Bird staying too long has borne it's poisonous fruit, it seems. Then again how else was the Rondo era ever to begin? Will there be other trades? Will the rebounding at least be better next year?

The Celtics will still be a 7th or 8th seed. The draft is much stronger next season. Maybe if the Celtics have one bad season, the Celtics will draft an alltime great.

To be honest i feel like we have an OK team. I feel like we need to get rid of coujrtney lee or jordan crawford though and give marshon brooks heavy minutes I think him and green along with sullinger will compliment rondo well. I still don't know how i feel about bradley though and I don't see how gerald wallace is gonna work out aside from being able to run but in the halfcourt he can't shoot and I know that's gonna make rondo mad lol.

It really just hit me the past couple of years how great of a player paul is/was when he passed larry bird in all-time scoring and when he got his 20,000th point. Also it surprised me how good paul was I remember a couple of years ago there was allen iverson,t-mac,vince, and kobe along with pierce and out of those guys kobe and pierce maintained their skills while the others regresses at a quicker pace which shows how hard pierce worked and how much he cared for the game I have nothing but respect for him.

@rcraig617 I think you are right. With Brooks,we have to move those two guys. Myabe Danny can still set up a package for someone like Josh Smith,Al Jefferson. The Jazz need some wings. They are stocked with bigs.

The one thing I like about Wallace is that at long last we have an enforcer. We have been desperately needing an enforcer. Is Reggie an enforcer, does anyone know? So tired of seeing Rondo kicked around without there being any retaliation.
