WATCH: Paul Pierce and Cedric Maxwell talk historic excellence, Boston Celtics

In honor of the NBA and Boston Celtics hitting their 75th anniversary, two Boston Celtics legends got together to talk about what it meant to be so beloved by that fanbase — and what it takes to be successful at the highest levels in Boston, in case any All-Star forwards whose name begins with “J” happen to be watching.

The duo also talked about Pierce’s time on the team, what he has been up to since parting ways with ESPN, his upcoming Showtime show with former teammate Kevin Garnett, an update on the status quo with Ray Allen, and lots more.

Watch the video embedded below courtesy of the folks over at CLNS Media’s appropriately named “Cedric Maxwell” podcast as these two Celtics greats talk all things Boston basketball and then some at the start of the 2021-22 NBA season, the league (and team’s) 75th.
