Paul Pierce “can’t pay attention” to trade rumors

Steve Nash and what is left of the once-feared Phoenix Suns came into the Gah-den and beat the Boston Celtics Friday night. That would be six losses in the last seven games, and like Friday some are coming to below .500 teams.

That is some more fuel on the growing “blow up the Celtics” fire.

Nothing is going to happen soon but the talk and rumors are swirling, and even reaching into the Celtics locker room. Paul Pierce was asked about it after the game, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com.

“You can’t pay attention to that,” he said after the Celts’ 79-71 loss to the Phoenix Suns Friday night. “That’s part of the business. You just gotta do your job as a professional each and every day. That’s about it.”

The Celtics are a veteran locker room, guys like Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have been at the center of trade rumors before. That’s not going to impact the Celtics on the court.

Which is good, they have enough problems there right now.
