Just finished reading the new SI article on Paul Pierce. Great story, very well written. I learned a few things and was reminded about a few more things I knew already. I'm very happy for Paul and I am very proud of him (I feel like I've watched him grow up with me). Here's one quote:
“I’ve always been the Rodney Dangerfield of this game,” he says. “Maybe it was meant to be that way, but that always drove me. If somebody said, ‘You’re going to be the Number 1 pick, you’re going to have a great team around you all these years’? It would’ve been too easy.”
Red's Army had several other quotes earlier this week, but the article is worth the read.
