Who were some of your favorite players to watch as you were growing up? John Collins: Man, a lot of players. I was a big, big Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady fan. Those were my two go-to players; I still have Fatheads of them on the walls at home. Also, even though we didn’t live in Florida a lot, it was sort of my home base so I was always a fan of the local teams. I liked the Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins, so I was a big, big Dwyane Wade fan as well. Kevin Garnett is another one; I was a young kid when I watched him, but it was always cool seeing how much intensity he played with.
Pierce conceded that he gave his position some additional thought after his objections to a joint tribute made headlines. He says he consulted his agent, his wife, his mother and Garnett. “Everyone understood where I was coming from,” Pierce said. “KG was like, ‘Isaiah who? Hell no, you’re damn right you’re not sharing your night with him.'” That is no longer a concern. “We owe Paul a lot,” Ainge said. “I feel indebted to him. The whole organization feels that way. We will have a great night for him. Argument over.”

There were never tapes of Shaquille O’Neal, the sort of massive, muscular big man that Kristaps Porzingis would never be, and not even of Shawn Bradley, the skinny, 7-foot-6 center who was once a No. 2 overall pick before playing 12 up and down seasons. There were the imagines of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Garnett, but mostly there were guards. “Definitely, and not just big point guards,” Kristaps said. “I was just watching point guards, how they played, and then Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant. I was always kind of watching the outside game more than the inside game.”
“We never had him [Kristaps Porzingis] watch that much of the big men,” Janis Porzingis said. “There are guys like Rasheed Wallace, who had an interesting post game, and (Kevin Garnett), who had moves no one had. But a lot what we watched was guards. There was nobody better on post than old Michael Jordan tapes. In ‘96, ’97, ’98, picking his plays, it was beautiful. Same with Kobe. “These players, it doesn’t have to be exactly your size, but you learn things you can do. The way it works, in summer workouts, I used to tell him what to do. Now I ask him what to do. He sees a move and we figure out if he would be able to do it. If he says no, we move on. We’re just trying to do what he could develop and what he could be good at.
