BOSTON – Paul Pierce is the most beloved member of the modern-day Boston Celtics.
In a profile in SI, running during the week of his Hall of Fame induction, Pierce discussed his life and career with Chris Mannix.
Part of the reason Pierce didn’t love working for ESPN? Having to talk about LeBron James all the time.
Celtics fans will also be interested to know of one idea Pierce has cooked up in his head: A TV show with Kevin Garnett, one in which the two Hall of Famers do “All the s- we couldn’t do when we played.”
Pierce added some ideas; “Skydiving. Maybe a bull run in Spain. Get motorcycles and travel around. Experience different cultures, different foods. That would be so much fun.”
And it wouldn’t be a story about Pierce’s career if it didn’t include some comments about the frayed relationship of the 2008 championship team with Ray Allen, who left Boston for Miami to help LeBron win a title with the Heat.
