Pierce: KG's number will be retired in Boston


BOSTON -- Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce believes Kevin Garnett's No. 5 will soon hang alongside Pierce's No. 34 in the rafters at TD Garden.
After Pierce's number was retired Sunday in Boston, the 10-time All-Star wondered if, in an era of players switching teams in free agency, it might be a while before Boston's next number retirement. Pierce later told ESPN that he believes Garnett is a slam-dunk to join him.
"Without a doubt, KG's number will be [the next one] retired in Boston," said Pierce. "It's going to happen."
