When Paul Pierce released his first blog post yesterday, I thought it might be a long time before we saw another one. Boston.com said he would be writing in “occasional installments”, and I worried “occasional installments” might mean “hardly ever installments”. So you can imagine how excited and surprised I was to see Pierce updated his blog again the day after his first post.
This time, he writes about three things he would change about the NBA, two things he’d change about the world, and one thing he’d change about himself.
Since the world pales in comparison to the NBA, I’ll show you one thing he wrote he would change about the NBA:

You’ll have to know how to play this game a little bit better then. Raising the rim, you’ll see increasing play. You’ll see increasing fundamentals. I’m telling you.
It makes sense Pierce would want to raise the rim three inches; he plays mostly underneath the rim anyways. One word of caution though, Paul: If it ever is raised three inches, you probably shouldn’t try dunking too much. You might end up looking like this guy:
