Paul Pierce is selling his Boston-area home

Former Boston Celtics' captain Paul Pierce took another step to distance himself from the place he called home for 15 years.

From the Boston Globe:

Just a few weeks after Kevin Garnett put his house in Concord on the market, another former Boston Celtic is selling his place. Longtime C’s captain and current Brooklyn Nets forward (and Garnett teammate still) Paul Pierce is looking to unload his home in Lincoln. As you might imagine, it’s a sweet house with five bedrooms and bathrooms, custom cabinetry, gourmet kitchen, and big windows overlooking a large private backyard. On her website, listing agent Patti Salem says the Pierce property combines sleek design with traditional attention to detail, such as the beautiful use of woods and quality craftsmanship throughout.” How much? A mere $2.6 million, a bargain compared with the $4.85 million Garnett asking price.

While it makes sense for Pierce to shed that asset, given his new digs in New York and his real home being in California, it would have been nice for him to keep his house in Massachusetts. Keep a little tether to the place where he became a hall-of-famer. Who knows, maybe Pierce will buy another, cheaper, home in New England when he retires.

The disparity in price between Garnett's house and Pierce's is kind of funny. Of course, both homes are worth millions of dollars, but it's not hard to figure out which player is one of the highest paid athletes of all time.
