Remember when Paul Pierce showed up for a post-playoff game press conference with his head bandaged up (apparently a silent objection to the flagrant foul called on him)? The timing was bad and he ended up looking silly at best and amateurish at worst.
Now he's still clowning around, which is who he is, and I respect that. Though once again, the timing doesn't quite seem right.
Yesterday morning was busy at the end of Concourse C in New Orleans International Airport. Passengers were waiting for a flight from Dallas, not much room to move, and there was Paul Pierce [stats], maneuvering through a gauntlet of luggage while in a wheelchair. Say what? "Ah, it’s nothing, I’m just kiddin’," said Pierce, who plans to participate in All-Star Weekend despite a strained left foot.
Oooooo-kay. Whatever. I'm not about to make a big deal out of this. I'm glad he's trying to break the tension in his own way - even if I don't "get" his humor.
Have a good time in Dallas Paul. Win that 3 point contest. Yuck it up with your crew. Do whatever you have to do to get the stench of these last several weeks off of you. When you get back to work in Sacramento for the start of a 4 game road trip (that includes a trip to LA LA land), you can shut everyone up by getting back to the winning ways we've come to associate with you.
