Terry Tate, Contract Linebacker

Celts blowing more smoke on signing Pierce to an extension. Read it in the Herald.

If I'm Paul Pierce's agent, I'm hiring Terry Tate, office linebacker to follow him around all year and DRILL him if he even THINKS of signing an extension with the Celtics.

Think about this for a second. Here's Pierce, one of the ten best players in the league, playing the best ball of his career on a team that has won 38, 45 and 33 regular season games and a whopping three playoff games in the last three years. Am I really going to sign this guy - who has maybe another 3-5 good years in him - to a team whose motto is "Be patient with us?" Nope, nope, nope. I'm going to let Pierce play out the season and then watch the teams line up to sign him for the big money, a chance at a title or both.

Can you imagine what the reaction would be if the Celtics had another lacklustre season and then LOST PIERCE at the end? "The parts of Danny and Doc will now be played by Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels."
