Whenever you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the Truth. -Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Last night Paul Pierce did what we’ve all been waiting for Paul Pierce to do. Last night, Paul Pierce stood up. Like Travis Bickle always says, ” Listen, you f**kers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up.” Paul Pierce stood up and was counted. Paul Pierce stood up and took over. Big Baby: “He’s amazing. Nothing surprises me.”
That’s right, the bounce is back. Yeah ma, your dude is back. Tell the whole world the Truth is back. Yes sports fans, your boy is back. Yes sports fans, Paul Pierce is back. Back with a vengeance. Rapid fire Louie like Rambo got bullets, I’m a gonna die harder like my kid Bruce Willis. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
During the pregame ceremonies on opening day this season, the Truth laughed. The Truth cried. The Truth said, “You dream of these moments, and to actually see your dream come true, it’s just unreal.” Then Paul Pierce did what Paul Pierce does best. He took over the basketball game. Just like he took over so many ballgames in last year’s post season. Last night, after halftime, that’s just what Paul Pierce did again. He took over the basketball game.
Welcome to the party, Paul. After a quiet first half, after a quiet first few games, the Truth joined the party with a bang. The Truth joined the party and scored nineteen of his twenty-six points in the second half. The Truth joined the party and knocked down three clutch Js in the waning moments of overtime. The Truth joined the party and knocked down the game winner winner chicken dinner with 3.4 seconds left. Happy trails, Hans.
I’ve said in the past that Paul Pierce is the most underrated player in the world. That’s what happens. That’s what happens when you don’t play in big games on the big stage. Well, the Truth is, Paul Pierce ain’t underrated no more. He’s now played the big games on the big stage. But, for those of you who think he cannot do this again, you better think twice.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
