Paul Pierce doesn't want Isaiah Thomas tribute on his ceremony day

It appears that the tribute video saga for Isaiah Thomas is reaching a resolution. Thomas told reporters before Wednesday's game that he wanted to save the honor for a night when his family could be at the Garden.

Paul Pierce, then with the Clippers, squared off with Isaiah Thomas, then with the Celtics, in a 2016 game.

Isaiah Thomas received a standing ovation on Wednesday night as the Cavaliers made their first appearance of the season in Boston.

The 28-year old point guard missed the first 36 games of the season while recovering from a torn labrum in his hip but made his Cavs debut on Tuesday night against the Blazers. You play for a team, you get traded, you get a tribute video. The Celtics went on to win 102-88. At 25-13, Cleveland is now sitting in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, 4.5 games back of the 31-10 Celtics.

Tesla Pushes Back Model 3 Manufacturing Forecast, Again
That number fell well short of Elon Musk's promise of producing 20,000 Model 3 sedans per month beginning in December. Beyond the Model 3, Tesla's overall auto deliveries were on target for the fourth quarter and the year as a whole.

The organization earmarked this occasion as the night to send their legend's number 34 to the rafters and pay tribute to his achievements in the green uniform. Gorman said he believes Thomas is overstating his place in franchise history, arguing that his two and half seasons in Boston pale in comparison to Pierce's 15.

"I'm not saying Isaiah shouldn't get a tribute video ... but on February 11, the night I get my jersey retired, I'm not sure I want to look up at the Jumbotron and see Isaiah highlights", Pierce said. "I just wanted my family to be here to see it".

"I.T. might have to wait 'til next year", Pierce added on ESPN's The Jump. "But if they choose to do it that night, that would be great, and I will be honored, and my family and friends can see how much they appreciated me here".

Paul Pierce wants the night of his jersey retirement to be all about him. I know people. I don't know why they're so mad about it.
