Are some of you guys kidding??? You guys wouldn't embrace and accept Pierce joining the Lakers just because he's been one of the Celtic greats???
Any player such as Pierce that is beneficial to this depleted Lakers bench and team in general would be a gift. Despite his age, he is a great competitor and would be the center piece/leader of the bench. Even though I doubt it happens, Pierce would easily average 12-14 points per game off the bench and to compare him to this years Antawn Jamison is disrespectful.
And as for the people saying that their are young guys with Pierce's ability that would accept the MLE. Name me two if not one....
They'd hate him till he came into summer camp.
Rivalries don't mean anything if he is producing for the team. People let go of that stuff AFTER the fact, but before the fact they'll just fight it and fight it and fight it. Cause it's change.
