Paul Pierce has made a big stink about the Celtics having the audacity to briefly honor Isaiah Thomas with a short video tribute before the Cavs visit the Celtics next month, and now that Thomas has formally asked the Celtics not to thank him, Pierce looks like a selfish asshole. Rather, as Jalen Rose put it straight to his face tonight on ESPN, he looks petty.

Congratulations to Paul Pierce on the 30 or so extra seconds of highlights and years of mockery he’ll get for defeating Isaiah Thomas.
