The Brooklyn Nets made their way to Boston tonight for the first time this season, meaning it was the first time Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were back in the Garden for a regular season game since they were traded over the summer.
In thanks for all the years of hard work and especially the 2008 championship, the Celtics honored the pair with tribute videos.
First, there was Garnett’s, which came during a media timeout in the 1st quarter.
Then there was Pierce’s, which followed the end of the 1st quarter.
It was an emotional night that brought tears to the eyes of both Pierce and Garnett, as well as many fans – myself included.
Thanks for everything, guys. It was a great run.
