Celtics legend Paul Pierce won’t have to pay for a drink in Boston as long as he lives.
Pierce helped the team win a title in 2008, and was also named Finals MVP during that epic series, coming up clutch a number of times down the stretch to help the team emerge victorious.
His No. 34 jersey was retired after Sunday’s game against the Cavaliers at TD Garden, and it was quite the ceremony. Pierce received a tribute video, and then saw his jersey get raised up into the rafters, among some of the other Celtics greats.
Celtics general manager Danny Ainge also shared some thoughts about Pierce with the fans.
And in case you haven’t seen it, here’s Pierce’s tribute video.
The Truth is currently an analyst for ESPN, but he’ll always be a star among Celtics fans, no matter what he does.
