Paul PierceToday Celtics captain Paul Pierce begins blogging exclusively on Boston.com's Celtics Blog. He'll offer his insight and opinions on basketball, his life and other topics in occasional installments.

I guess the obvious question is, "Why am I doing this?"
I've put a lot out there about myself for Celtics fans and for Paul Pierce fans in the past. You all know who I am as a basketball player and a Boston Celtic.
But for me, blogging is going to give me a chance to let other people get to know me even better, which is what I really want. When I'm done with this game I want people to know more about Paul Pierce as a person than just as a basketball player.
When I retire I don't want people to just talk about my accomplishments on the court. When I'm done playing I want them to really know about me, about my life and what I do to make a difference in my community and the positive impact I try to have on other people.
I've been in Boston for 12 years. At this point, I probably know this city better than where I grew up in Inglewood, Calif. I've been here so long (It took me like six-seven years to really learn this city with all these rotaries, but hey ... ).
Now I feel like Boston is MY city. I have embraced it and I love it.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like someone wrote this for Paul Pierce and he has nothing to do with it?

    Haha The "As told to Globe reporter Julian Benbow" at the end might have something to do with it.
