“Mr. Pierce, take down that jersey.”
☘️ Un-retiring #34

Mr. Pierce, watching you enjoy yourself on the Jump with Rachel Nichols and KG’s Area 21 – reliving your finest hour with Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers in full agreement….

Well, in short, it’s such a joy to see you enjoying a relaxed but productive retirement.

Sadly, all that is about to end — at least until June.

Surely, in recent days, you’ve seen the Celtics roster. Well, maybe half of it. The other half is located at different treatment, evaluation, and rehab facilities.

Hence, it pains us to do this to you, but it’s time to pull that #34 down from the rafters for one more run. The Boston Celtics need you.

We know you’ve been working out on the side. We know you can still knock down a three. Heck, you hit one just a year ago, ish, in the Garden. It was, indeed, one of your greatest Celtic moments. Remember how the fans reacted?

Everyone likes the way that jersey looks up in the rafters. But we need that jersey back in action.

“It’s always impossible until you do it,” as Mr. Mandela put it. Once you do, anything is possible. Make the call to Danny Ainge. And don’t miss the shoot-around.

It’s time for one more run, and one more banner. Your number is being called, Paul Pierce. It is… A Time for Truth.
