For the aging veterans this season it will be a battle against health– and this season Pierce is starting healthy, hopefully he finishes the same way (ESPNboston)
“I’m 100 percent now,” Pierce said at the team’s annual media day. “But I think it was maybe Game 3 (against) Atlanta. … It really limited me because it was like no treatment that I could have done at the time was going to get it better. It limited me as far as lateral movement and jumping ability. Not that I had a lot of jumping ability anyway. And there’s times when you get up out of bed and it’s really stiff, you’ve got to get on the bike to warm it up. It was definitely a mental grind at that point. I’m just happy that’s behind me.”
More good news out of media day. I feel like I have finally awakened from a deep slumber into giddy ecstasy– and its only the beginning of training camp, October 30th, here I come.
