Celtics Paul Pierce will be blogging on the Boston Globes Celtics Blog so people can understand who he is not only on the court, but off the court and in the community as well. Via Paul Pierce’s post:
When I retire I don’t want people to just talk about my accomplishments on the court. When I’m done playing I want them to really know about me, about my life and what I do to make a difference in my community and the positive impact I try to have on other people.
You look around the league and see a lot of great players. You have some Hall of Famers that have been on multiple teams and you think at the end of the day, which team do they represent? And I can definitely say I am a Boston Celtic through and through. When people look back at my career they’re going to identify me with one team.
I think this is interesting and a great idea by the captain. I will definitely be checking in to see when he has a write up.
