Come on. Notice who is pretty much excluded from this video. Tell me I'm wrong about Paul never accepting Rondo's role on this team. Tell me and then watch this video again. Paul hugging/posing with the Big Three repeatedly. Paul hugging/posing with Doc repeatedly. Paul posing with Tom Brady and Bill Russell. But Rondo? Only in the background of one picture, looking weird. Paul poses with Larry, poses with fans, poses with Red, is featured with Jason Kidd and Lebron James in action shots - but no Rondo, except for one rather unflattering photo of Rondo gawping at Pierce's shot, and another where Rondo is waaay in the background. The man had to search for photos just to NOT include Rondo. There is some serious bad blood between those two.

No Ainge either, ya notice. Man, I can't wait until we play the Nets. I don't care if they are going on like a juggernaut, I still want to beat them so bad. I hate them more than the Heat now.

Kevin, Ainge does appear in one photo in a version that Celtics Blog has. So there's that. I can't get the whole thing to download, so I can't tell if a token picture of Rondo is also thrown in there, but I think Paul Pierce sent a pretty clear shot over Rondo's bow with this. I hope Rondo shoots back next season and takes down the Nets repeatedly.

You are so right, Celts. Yup. Paul just accidentally excluded Rondo from his capsule history. He just kind of accidentally rewrote history. No meaning to it.

OF COURSE IT MEANS SOMETHING. Imagine you had a scrapbook, and in it there were zero pictures of one of your siblings, or one of your children, or whatever, but lots of pictures of everyone else. Do you think that might mean something.

Sure Paul is thanking the fans. More to the point, he's glorifying himself. And more to the point than that, he's taking a shot at Rondo. I wonder if any of the fake 'journalists' will ask Paul about this? How did one of the most important comrades on your Big Three journey, over the past seven years, just disappear from your scrapbook, Paul? I wonder if Paul will man up and explain what happened last year, what his beef with Rondo is? I'll bet it has quite a bit to do with that Clippers game and that disastrous west coast trip where the team seemed to just give up.


I'm so looking forward to future Nets games. Can't wait.

But Celts, dude, believe what you want. If you want to sing pious hosannas to Paul Pierce, and his lovely 'tribute to the fans' (which is mostly just pictures of his own mug), then that's fine.

I think it's just to symbol that he went head-to-head with the best player of his generation. I honestly don't read anything into this Paul. I agree with you on most, but this to me is a half ass production by Pierce. The meaning is genuine, but Pierce left out many people, Walker? Perkins? 90% of this video is him. I think it doesn't matter anymore. Paul is gone, and now Rondo is in charge. I would have been nice to see Rondo in a picture, but he's not. Like Kevin5 said, I will see what Pierce and KG say this Thursday at their presser.

I hear you CsLife, and I certainly would have like to have seen Walker and Perkins in there, but to leave Rondo out is just too glaring to ignore. The message has been sent by Pierce. It's underlined by the heavy presence of Judas Shuttlesworth. I hope that Rondo sends a message of his own on the basketball court next year.

personally i don't think paul and rondo had beef i just don't think their games clicked well on the court look at ray and rondo they apparently had beef, but they clicked fantastic on the court, ofc the media isn't gonna ask about this because theres nothing to report about hell if they had beef at all it woulda came out by now since pierce left and the media loves to make rondo the bad guy, but like i said i don't think their games mesh as well as it did with kg/ray and ofc pierce is in all the pictures because its his thankyou to boston and showing his time here. look i don't wanna attack or anything, but its things like this that just make me angry when nothing at all becomes something because someone wants it to be something. i mean if you really wanna get nit picky theres no perk really if it all yet everyone knows people loved him i don't see jeff green no sully no bradley and the only no tony allen no glen davis etc. look i can't change how you see it, but we'll agree to disagree i guess.

Agree with that. Not one rumor about Rondo and Pierce. Ray and Rondo yes of course, and towards the end of Doc's tenure, the day before his trade. The Doc and Rondo fight rumor came out. Which the fight happened years ago. I think this should be the last of this topic. Paul is gone. It's a new day.

What I'm calling attention to is patently obvious and telling. If you don't agree or don't want to see it, fine.

I do agree that we haven't heard rumors specifically about Pierce, but the thing is, that was also true of the others until we did, I believe. Stories tend to come out when someone thinks it is to their advantage

Lol!! I don't hate them more than the heat, but I still hate them though!!
Interesting point, Paul. Maybe they didn't have a real beef going on, but I'm pretty sure that as you said, Pierce never really accepted Rondo's role on the team, and this was pretty clear last year.
I can't wait to play the Nets either.
