Isaiah Thomas Passes On Celtics Tribute Video, Cedes To Paul Pierce

by January 16, 2018

The mini-controversy involving Isaiah Thomas‘ Celtics video tribute and Paul Pierce‘s jersey retirement ceremony has finally reached a peaceful resolution.

With IT’s rescheduled tribute falling on the same day as Pierce’s huge honor, February 11th, the future Hall-of-Famer took offense and said he didn’t want to share the spotlight on his special day. But, in a series of tweets on Tuesday night, IT took the high road and relented, allowing Pierce to have the night to himself.

All class from IT. While he didn’t wear Celtic green-and-white for all too long, he certainly made enough of an impact to deserve his own tribute video so it remains to be seen if Boston honors him in any way when the Cavaliers head to TD Garden for the final time (in the regular season, at least).
