Devin Booker walked into Friday night’s game against the Boston Celtics averaging 20.9 points per game. Well, we haven’t done the math just yet, but it’s likely that just took a significant jump.
Following the 2016-17 NBA season, Paul Pierce plans on retiring as a member of the Boston Celtics, according to Justin Termine of the Sirius XM NBA Radio. Back in September, Pierce wrote a short letter on The Players’ Tribune, revealing that his upcoming 19th year in the league would be his last. “It’s time to move on from the game of basketball. Just like any difficult decision, I think you’ve got to be at peace with yourself,” Pierce wrote. “I’m at peace with retiring, but I’ve got one more ride left.”
