Julia’s Parents Were There! Paul Pierce Number Retirement Ceremony @ TD Boston Garden, 11 February 2018
The most storied franchise in NBA history retired another jersey number on Sunday. The #34 worn by Paul “The Truth” Pierce for 15 years as a Boston Celtic was sent to the rafters to hang alongside 21 other retired numbers and 17 championship banners. The only damper on the day was that the Celtics were beaten by the Cavaliers, but our friend Julia’s parents were there as Boston honored a man who helped the iconic franchise return to glory in the 2000’s. Thank you for allowing us to showcase your photographs!!
