Paul Pierce was on the phone talking about his 2010 Celtics and the second-round series against Cleveland. He seemed to take particular joy in the video of LeBron James walking off the court in the Garden and removing his jersey on the way to the dressing room — the prelude to a departure for Miami two months later. “We could be seeing history repeat itself,” Pierce said through laughter. “That’s the funny part about it, because if Boston beats them, we all know he’s gone. He may be gone anyway.”

World Peace, a former Laker, was in attendance with a close viewing seat to the altercation at the Lakers-Rockets game. “I hope everyone doesn’t get fined,” World Peace told The Undefeated. “It was a fight. It was unfortunate. The first time they’ve ever thrown punches. They shouldn’t do it. … It happened. I’ve never seen them fight before. It was the first time. I don’t think anyone should be suspended.”

The Chicago Bulls are walking away from the oft-injured Omer Asik, announcing they had waived the center on Sunday. Asik hadn’t played for the Bulls this season after he was ruled out indefinitely with inflammatory arthritis in September. Asik’s $11.3 million salary for 2018-19 was fully guaranteed, and he is owed $3 million for next season as a partial guarantee. The Bulls would owe him the full $14.3 million unless a team claims him off waivers, which is unlikely.
