Trade Pierce and Bambino will be laughing

That sweet sound: softer than a topspin backhand of Roger Federer, as smooth as Messi´s gambeta and precise as a bullet: that´s Paul Pierce´s late three point shots in front of the basket, with minimum arc, hitting the back of the rim. High percentage corner three? A trick for kids. Paul prefers the ‘in your face, so you think you can catch me, but I´m like Son Goku with the ball when you get here’ kind of threes. Does he ever miss? He just warms up for when it counts. That time when Melo uses goggles and Lebron needs a diaper. In the end of quarters, in the end of games, in overtime, that´s when Paul Pierce forgets the sciatica, elevates a couple of inches and fires at will. Wednesday night, at the Madison Square, he did it again. And I swear I heard it. That sweet sound. In the quiet, as it usually is when Paul Pierce owns the ball in late game situations. Melo was frustrated. That´s when we knew the Knicks were doomed. That slight irritation on Melo´s face when Paul knocked a triple with Felton on his lap, with 3:38 to go in the third quarter. If you´re confident, you don´t give a shit. You know you´re going to knock the next. But he didn´t. And he knew Pierce was just going to keep on coming. And Terry. And Garnett, with that double fake on Tyson Chandler to finish it off. Before the game, the Knicks dressed for a funeral. I don´t know if somebody died, but they sure as hell have kneeled before the Celtics. Supposedly, Melo was the first quarter leading scorer in the regular season. That´s when Melo is at its melonian best. But brother, I don´t even watch the first quarter. You know that drop-by-drop chinese water torture? That´s what the sweet sound of Pierce´s triples hitting the back of the rim is to Melo. Over and over again. Year after year, and, let´s hope, for a few more. Ainge wants to trade him. Do that and we will be cursed for years. That´s a God given shoot. I´m an atheist, except for the really important things in life. Like the Celtics. Trade Paul and God is gonna be on us. They say we can get Pau Gasol for him. Gasol? Smart as they come, but has no heart. Not comparing with Paul. If I needed a heart transplant and Gasol´s was the only one available, I would go for a pig´s. Trade Pierce and he will come back to haunt us. Like he is gonna do tonight to Melo.
