Was this the last regular season game for Paul Pierce? We don’t know that, but fans in Los Angeles on Wednesday night wanted to see the future Hall of Famer if it was.
That’s why, with a little more than two minutes left in the matchup against the Sacramento Kings, fans at Staples Center started a chant.
“WE WANT PAUL! WE WANT PAUL! WE WANT PAUL!”
Smiling, it looked at first that Pierce wasn’t inclined to enter the game. But after some goading by coach Doc Rivers and teammate Chris Paul, Pierce eventually checked in.
He didn’t really do much after he got on the floor, but it was a fun Game 82 moment in any case.
