I’ve already linked to the Herald piece about Danny’s attempt at making a deal… but I glossed over this quote from Paul Pierce:
“I think it would help us. You don’t want to burn out me and Ray (Allen) coming down the stretch to where we’re having to play heavy minutes, especially going into the playoffs.”
Part of me feels like this is nothing. But then I realize that I’ve never heard him, or many other players for that matter, offer up the possibility of getting burned out without some prodding.
So… should I be concerned that Paul is suddenly talking about that possibility?
