this is BS, especially since Pierce is now an ABC/ESPN employee. The story of the pregame will be on PP. TRUTH.Outside of Boston (and NBA nerds) the story of this nationally televised game will be Thomas' return to Boston for the first time as a player. ESPN/ABC will be hyping that just as much, if not more than their employee getting his number retired, IT video tribute or not. Hell, most casual NBA fans won't even care to see the retirement ceremony.
Once again, a quick video tribute will do almost nothing to detract from the team recognizing Pierce in front of the fans who care about him.
