Isaiah Thomas responds to Paul Pierce's video tribute comments

Paul Pierce says Isaiah Thomas shouldn't get a tribute on his jersey retirement night

Paul Pierce says Isaiah Thomas shouldn't get a tribute on his jersey retirement night

Since Thomas didn't play, he asked the Celtics to push his tribute video back until when he's active. As it turns out, the Celtics already had plans of retiring Paul Pierce's jersey on February 11, and it sounds like he doesn't want Thomas stealing his thunder.

Speaking on ESPN's "The Jump", Pierce made it clear, though, that he wants the night to belong to him and prefers that the Celtics don't run a video for Isaiah. Over 15 seasons with the Celtics, Pierce was named an all-star 10 times and helped Boston win the 2007-08 National Basketball Association title, for which he was named Finals MVP, as well as reach the 2010 Finals.

One former Boston Celtics star doesn't think another should be honored on his night.

FX has given a 10-episode series order to the " Sons of Anarchy " spinoff " Mayans MC ", the network announced on Friday. The network's library of acquired box-office hit movies is unmatched by any ad-supported television network.

But in an interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher and Rich (as reported by CBS Boston), Celtics president Danny Ainge assures that the 90-second video tribute for Thomas won't take away from Pierce's big night. Gorman said he believes Thomas is overstating his place in franchise history, arguing that his two and half seasons in Boston pale in comparison to Pierce's 15. Like, I just wanted my family to be here to see it. That's what it came down to. I wanted to be able to play.

"I wanted my family to experience the love and appreciation this city and this organization was going to give me on that night", he said. And when my representatives reached out to these guys, they were all for it. They agreed on it. I don't know if they need to put him in a tribute video ... "And my family and friends can see how much they appreciated me here".

It's leading to a lot of scaly surprised for Floridians, who are finding the "cold-stunned" lizards everywhere. Although they do a great job of playing dead, they're still very much alive and are simply too cold to move.

There has been no confirmation whether or not this will have any effect on the game in February, but Pierce is clearly not on board with Thomas taking some of his limelight.
