Paul Pierce Beats up the Lakers in Game 1

Tell me you saw this last night. Game one of the NBA finals, which I'm eagerly soaking in because one of my all-time favorites, Paul Pierce, is finally going to get his championship ring.

As the first half ended, former Jayhawk stud and six-time NBA All Star was sitting on the bench with 3 points and 3 fouls. Then in the third quarter he went off on the L.A. Lakers--injured his knee in a smash-up that had the Celtic Nation holding its breath--and returned from the locker room to stir fans to euphoria and seal the Boston victory.

Check this video, especially the third play in, where Paul Pierce drops in a three after taking a hard foul. Incredible. This brings me back to 1996-1997 when Pierce was killing opponents in the Big 12. I'm out like Kobe Bryant in game 1...
