Gay lady seeking pierce to meeting
However, such a move would be a ificant step in the wrong direction for a team currently playing its best basketball of the season. Throw Paul Pierce in as trade bait, and all of a sudden, the possibility of a catastrophic backlash from the Celtics fanbase lingers on the horizon. It makes sense.
It's what Brooklyn Nets players do every time a teammate hits the deck and the clock stops.
