It's an idea whose time has come; NBA players as European soccer goalies. Perhaps the Celtics' Paul Pierce is not the one to blaze this particular trail, however; as he looks here less like a keeper and more like a captured tuna.
Pierce stopped in at the UCLA practice field on Wednesday as Chelsea was tuning up for its exhibition with the Los Angeles Galaxy, demanding to mind the net. You know, in theory, this should work. Why Manute Bol never tried to become a goalie is a complete mystery.
