Paul Pierce: "They're going to fight. That's that Celtics Pride"

“I love those guys. They’re going to fight. That’s that Celtics pride. They all wear it with pride. You see it in the way they play, the way they’re coached. You hear [Rajon] Rondo on the sidelines coaching. They’re going to continue to be the Celtics, and they’re going to always play with pride.”

Ugh. Dammit, Paul. The best thing you could do for Boston is to turn full on WWE bad guy. Make it easy for us to cheer against you! Come out and smash Brad Stevens with a steel chair! Clip Rondo's knee from behind when he's being interviewed by Abby Chin. Make fun of the kids sitting courtside! Do something bad!

I don't care what needs to happen or how far over the cap we go. Pierce needs to end his career in Boston, right? Like this is a known fact, isn't it? No more games. Let's just call this his semester abroad and keep his locker nice and clean for when he comes home.
