Paul Pierce is not sure he wants a video tribute of Isaiah Thomas on his night. On February 11, Pierce’s number 34 will be retired by the Celtics.
Thomas, who went back to Boston as a member of the Cavaliers last night, but did not play, requested that the Celtics not give him a video tribute until the Cavaliers return to Boston on February 11.
Pierce talked about what he thinks should happen today on ESPN’s The Jump:
“On February 11, the night I get my jersey retirement, I’m not sure I want to look up at the jumbotron and see Isaiah highlights. After all the years I put in.
“I had a chance to watch Kobe’s, and throughout the game, the timeouts, it was a lot of tribute videos for him, and I enjoyed to watch that throughout the game. Now hopefully, the Boston Celtics will do that for me.”
“I’m not sure if I want to see an Isaiah video that night.”
