During an interview with the Dale & Holley Show on WEEI this afternoon, Celtics guard Eddie House said that teammate Paul Pierce has been invited to the 3-point shooting contest during the NBA's All-Star Weekend. House said that he himself has not received an invitation for the contest, and that the league chose Pierce instead.
"Paul is actually going to be the one representing the Celtics in the 3-Point Contest," said House. "Hope all is well with that and he gets a win."
Congrats to Paul. Sucks for Eddie though. Truth is the NBA is all about stars, so I could totally see this coming. There's always the possibility that Pierce can't go do to his foot (bad sign) and that House become his replacement.
