“Kyrie can impact this team in a major way,” Pierce said in an exclusive 1-on-1 interview with CSN’s A. Sherrod Blakely. “You saw what Isaiah Thomas was able to do. A lot of people, even though Isaiah averaged more points, a lot of people believe Kyrie is a better scorer.” Thomas, who was part of the trade with Cleveland that sent Irving to Boston, ranked third in the NBA in scoring last season with a 28.9 points per game average – tops among all players in the East.
For Pierce, he doesn’t see Tatum being as good as he was scoring the ball when the 10-time All-Star came into league in 1998. He’s better. “He looks like an older version of me, when I started doing the step-back and stuff,” Pierce said in an exclusive interview with CSN. “When I’m watching him, he looks like a mature version of my game, like sixth, seventh, eighth year. He sees the defense. He knows what’s going to happen before it happens. He understands his position, footwork, his step-back (jumper) is there. His offensive repertoire seems complete. The sky is the limit for that kid.”
Ray Allen and his breakup with the Celtics might finally be reaching a happy ending. Paul Pierce recently said on Instagram how he wants to bury the hatchet with Allen and their former Celtics teammates. While no public comments have been made from Kevin Garnett or Rajon Rondo, Allen appears ready to take his part in ending the feud. In an interview with ESPN, Allen said that he holds “no ill will” toward his former Celtics teammates. He appreciates the time they spent together and the championship they won. To him it was like a family and he wants that feeling back. However, he did make sure to mention he’s never publicly criticized his former teammates the way they have about him.
