The Celtics just announced that Paul Pierce’s retirement ceremony will take place Sunday, Feb. 11 following the 3:30pm game against the Cavaliers.
The post game slot ensures the ceremony will not be rushed and Pierce will get his due.
Grab your tickets now. High level balcony seats are already fetching $300 on Stub Hub.
Pierce’s #34 will be the 22nd number hoisted into the rafters. Ten other players wore #34 for the Celtics.
- Clyde Lovellette 1964
- Bevo Nordmann 1965
- Jim Ard 1975-1978
- Dennis Awtrey 1979
- Rick Carlisle 1985-1987
- Kevin Gamble 1989-1994

Outside of Gamble and McDaniel, I wouldn’t have been able to name anyway else on that list.
