The Truth thanks Boston

Being fortunate enough to have Tuesdays off,  I was on Twitter today (as usual) as Paul Pierce took us all down memory lane. He hadn’t tweeted anything in regards to “the trade” yet, and then he came out with this tweet late this afternoon:

What followed was simply beautiful. Paul Pierce tweeting out picture after great picture of his time spent in Boston. A truly heartfelt and genuine thank you to the millions of fans around the world, and of course those right here in Boston that have supported him through 15 seasons in green. Truth included the hashtag “#THANKYOUBOSTON” on each and every picture. As much as I know it was time for a new era, I’m still devastated that Pierce will be suiting-up for another team, in another city next season. But I wish him nothing but the best, and would love to see him get another NBA title before he retires.

Paul compiled each and every picture from his “#THANKYOUBOSTON” tweetathon into a slideshow/video. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed watching Truth over the years…

    heh twitter treats Paul’s link as a twitter account instead of an instagram account and it pulls up a Chinese guy in Shanghai who has @paulpierce.

    • KWAPT

      Lol..yeah, I got the Chinese guy too..poor guy must’ve gotten like a million tweets & been like WTF..

  • Celtic Bro

    Man, watching this really hurt.

  • Frank Aziza

    If we traded Wallace for Pierce and Humphries for KG I think we could make a run at the finals.

  • Amir Buxbaum

    What am I going to do with all of my Pierce t-shirts? 🙁

    • zippittyay

      I’ll gladly take them.

    • LA Flake

      Send’em my way!
      Never bought a player’s jersey before but I’m looking to buy Pierce’s to frame it and hang it up in my boys’ room.

  • LA Flake

    DAMN…Why you gotta make me weep at work???

    I LOVE YOU, PAUL!!!! THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Still should have stayed a Celtic.

    • Brick James

      IDK man, you can’t blame him. Practically no one stays on the same team their whole career. Nowadays: Kobe, Dirk, Duncan… that’s gonna be it.

      #34 is going up in the rafters and to the HoF as a CELTIC.

      • forever_green

        If by him, you mean DA, then yes I do blame him.

        • Brick James

          So you’d rather have an aging Pierce fade into retirement in mediocrity than 4 first round draft picks? OK.
