Nene, Teammates Suspended For Leaving Bench During Monday’s Pierce/Noah Spat

Nené

Suspensions surely aren’t what Paul Pierce had in mind when he recently stressed a mindset of toughness and physicality to his new Washington Wizards teammates – especially when the players in question weren’t even involved in the incident. After Nene, Dejuan Blair, Daniel Orton, and Xavier Silas left the bench while Pierce tangled with Joakim Noah during Washington’s exhibition against the Chicago Bulls on Monday, the league has suspended the Wizards quartet for the first game of the 2014-2015 regular season.

The Eastern Conference has been nicknamed the LEastern Conference based off the lopsided talent in favor of the West. But with LeBron James staying in the East with a new super team in Cleveland Derrick Rose back (hopefully to stay), up-and-coming teams in Toronto, Washington and Charlotte, the Phil Jackson experiment in New York, and a Heat team that’s better than many think, it’s not exactly a cakewalk to come out of the East this spring. Washington’s newest small forward, Paul Pierce, thinks his new Wiz mates have as good a chance as anyone. Read More »

The Bulls and Wizards re-acquainted themselves tonight after going at in the first round of the playoffs last season as the No. 4 and 5 seed in the East. New Wizard addition Paul Pierce has already endeared himself to the Wiz faithful while continuing to be an annoying jab in the side of the Bulls, particularly center Joakim Noah, who probably still has the imprint of Pierce’s index finger on his forehead.

Paul Pierce Is Representing The Celtics At Derek Jeter’s Final Game In Boston

Paul Pierce

New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter’s farewell tour is of almost no interest to us. Kudos to Jeter on a fantastic career apparently performed with utmost class, and he deserves congratulations for writing such a storybook ending to his time wearing pinstripes earlier this week, too. But basketball is our game – we’d much rather wax nostalgic about the imminent NBA twilight of Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett than talk the Yankees captain. Except for now, that is. Jeter is playing his final game at Boston’s Fenway Park today, and Paul Pierce – who, you may remember, now plays for the Washington Wizards – is there to represent the Celtics. Read More »
