Bird: Garnett, Pierce Have ‘plenty left’
Larry Bird understands why the Boston Celtics chose to trade away Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, essentially ending one of the most successful eras in franchise history.
“I think they’ve both been pretty healthy throughout their careers,” Bird said Monday while speaking to reporters following the Indiana Pacers’ Orlando Summer League game. “They haven’t had the major, major injuries that I had.
“I think they got plenty left. The way they will be coached and the bench that they have — yeah — they’ll pick their spots. But when the time comes, they’ll be there.”
