Former Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas requested that a video honoring his contributions to the team be played February 11. There is just one tiny problem: it's the same night Paul Pierce's jersey is being retired. After leading the team to the playoffs last year and playing through the death of his sister, Thomas deserves to have a two-minute video somewhere during the game. Still, it is Pierce's day to be honored for his 15 years of service to the team. What do you think? 🏀

What's wrong with honoring two great players the same night? Isaiah Thomas may not have stayed with Boston, but it wasn't his fault he got shipped out. When he was with the team, he gave his heart and soul every minute, even playing through the death of his sister to help the Celtics win a playoff game last season.

Paul Pierce has plenty of time to soak up the praises of the Boston crowd for his legendary career. He doesn't need to be too selfish and ban a two-minute video to run during a timeout for the team to honor a guy who gave a lot to Boston. The Celtics should play the tribute video to Thomas on February 11.

Isaiah Thomas played just over two years in Boston. Paul Pierce played 15 years for the team and won an NBA championship for the city. February 11 is a date that should be dedicated to Pierce and Pierce only.

Thomas had the opportunity to be honored in January when the Cavaliers played the Celtics. But he delayed the video being played because he was not active for the game. It's his own fault he was not honored earlier this year, and there is no way he should push out Pierce on his day. When it comes to Hall of Fame players like Paul Pierce, he has earned an entire day to himself. There's always next year, Thomas.
